Python Wrappers for Remote Access Tools

pywrat (Python Wrappers for Remote Access Tools) is a set of wrappers that can be used for accessing remote hosts. They use ssh and scp for remote shell and file system access and can be used as a generalized access method with a single configuration file for all host, user, and key setups. The wrappers are intended to simplify remote access in shell scripts, but it is also possible to use the wrapper modules directly from Python programs.

Recent releases

    Release Notes: This release slightly improves automatic configuration of the Python modules.

      Release Notes: The documentation was updated to include new and changed options.

      •  02 Dec 2004 20:23

        Release Notes: This release improves support for session multiplexing in OpenSSH 3.9. With the addition of the 'check_multiplex' configuration directive, it's now easy to configure all pywrat commands to automatically set up a master connection for session multiplexing if one isn't already available. Apparently, OpenSSH does not include such a feature.

        •  01 Dec 2004 10:05

          Release Notes: This release adds support for environment setup and clean up for all pywrat commands. That is particularly useful if pywrat is used in combination with the "session multiplexing" feature available in OpenSSH versions 3.9 and later. Then the environment setup can be used to make sure that the master connection is available so that multiplexing can continue.

            Release Notes: This release adds support for 'fsh' to considerably speed up repeated connections to the same remote host.
