Installing netmiko on Windows

Netmiko is a Python module by Kirk Byers that provides a wrapper around the Paramiko SSH module for doing screen scraping and CLI automation on network devices.

Paramiko has some dependencies that make installation on Windows a tad tricky. Here's a quick way to get it done:

  1. Install Anaconda.
  2. From the Anaconda shell, run "conda install paramiko".
  3. From the Anaconda shell, run "pip install scp".
  4. Install git for Windows.
  5. Clone netmiko with "git clone"
  6. cd into the netmiko directory and run "python install".
Done! Screen scrape away, and don't forget to hound your vendors for real APIs... :-)

I do have perhaps a stupid question since I am a scripter not a programer. I am receiving an error message...
error: Unable to find vcvarsall.bat
I have done a search and cannot find this file either. I was researching some things and came up with a bunch of info about compiling visual studio. I think? Perhaps you can shed some light on this.

Hi There,

11/10!! Your blog is such a complete read. I like your approach with
"Installing netmiko on Windows". Clearly, you wrote it to make learning a cake walk for me.

have a rather old, slow laptop that I would like to put Linux on. Out of the operating systems that I've used, my favorite is Ubuntu. Now that I'm looking for one to put on the laptop, I'm not sure whether I should get Ubuntu, Kubuntu, or Xubuntu. I will mainly be using the laptop for word processing and some web surfing.

But nice Article Mate! Great Information! Keep up the good work!
