SSH to an IAP via script

  • 1.  SSH to an IAP via script

    Posted 28 days ago
    Hello,

    I wanted to see if anyone has a working example of a pythion script that can connect to an IAP cluster and execute basic commands.

    Thanks,

    Not sure what you are trying to achieve, but you may have a look at Airrecorder.

    And not python, but Expect (which has a Python module as well, so you may use it to convert into python), this is a script that logs in over ssh, checks if a client is connected to the AP, and if it is it will disconnect the client, just as an example:
    #!/usr/bin/expect -f
    
    set timeout 20
    set ip [lindex $argv 0]
    
    spawn ssh admin@$ip
    
    expect "password:"
    
    send -- "ThePassword-here\r"
    
    expect "#"
    send -- "show clients | inc b8:27:eb:01:3a:ff\r"
    
    expect {
       "rpi-client" {
          send -- "disconnect-user mac b8:27:eb:01:3a:ff\r"
       }
       "#" {
          send -- "\r"
       }
    }
    
    expect "#"
    send -- "exit"
    ​

    Note that scripting over SSH is not really recommended as the CLI commands or command output may change over time. Sometimes it is just a pragmatic and quick, so from that points valid approach to fix an immediate issue.

    Hi,

    did you look at netmiko?

    https://github.com/ktbyers/netmiko

    It is written in python and can work with many network vendors. I think IAP's are currently not there, but from my point of view, it should still work.

    Thanks guys. Sorry for the last response. I was able to get it working using NetMiko. I didn't realize it would work with Aruba equipment. We aren't allowed to have JRE on our systems here so Air Recorder is not an option unfortunately.
