 connect via ssh to a remote host and run a command locally
Hi everyone,

i'm new to python, please don't hold that against :-)

i'm looking to ssh into a remote computer and run a command locally, this is what i have so far but the local command doesn't seem to run.

if i run it without this command, i receive "Done."
stdin, stdout, stderr = client.exec_command("svt-shutdown-safe")

but when i run it with the above line, it get an error and the "svt-shutdown-safe" command doesn't run.

any help is much appreciated.

import paramiko

    client = paramiko.SSHClient()

    client.connect("", port="22", username="MyUsername", password="MyPassword")

    stdin, stdout, stderr = client.exec_command("svt-shutdown-safe")

print ("done.")
