On Windows 7 I have tried to install paramiko package so as to have possibility to SSH from Python scripts to network devices or any other SSH servers.
- Install setuptools https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools#id3
- Install VC++ compiler for Python2.7 http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44266
- Install a required package:
pip install paramiko
VC++ compiler installation is needed as some of the downloaded files needs compilation to executable files or libraries.
