How can I use 'pexpect' to run a script in a remote machine? Please help to modify following code to achieve my goal.

!/usr/bin/env python

import pexpect

ssh_newkey = 'Are you sure you want to continue connecting'

my ssh command line

p=pexpect.spawn('ssh [email protected] uname -a')

i=p.expect([sshnewkey,'password:',pexpect.EOF]) if i==0: print "I say yes" p.sendline('yes') i=p.expect([sshnewkey,'password:',pexpect.EOF]) if i==1: print "I give password", p.sendline("mypassword") p.expect(pexpect.EOF) elif i==2: print "I either got key or connection timeout" pass print p.before # print out the result
