Save outputs to Desktop - cisicomania - Aug-31-2018

Hello,

I wrote my first script.
It is logging to 2 Router's console\CLI and executing few commands.
Afterwards in Router's console I have outputs which shows me for example IP Addresing
Output:
R1#sho ip int bri Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Protocol Ethernet0/0 unassigned YES unset administratively down down Ethernet0/1 unassigned YES unset administratively down down Ethernet0/2 unassigned YES unset administratively down down Ethernet0/3 unassigned YES unset administratively down down Loopback0 1.1.1.1 YES manual up up Loopback1 2.2.2.2 YES manual up up R1#show interface description Interface Status Protocol Description Et0/0 admin down down Et0/1 admin down down Et0/2 admin down down Et0/3 admin down down Lo0 up up Lo1 up up R1#
My question is how to save those outputs to my Desktop in text document format.


import getpass
import sys
import telnetlib

print ("Script starts")

HOST = "71.61.14.36"

tn = telnetlib.Telnet(HOST, "33153",)
print ("Telnetting to device")

tn2 = telnetlib.Telnet(HOST, "33154",)
print ("Telnetting to device")


print ("Executing commands")
tn.write("\n\n\n\n")
tn.write("\n\n\n\n")
tn.write("enable\n")
tn.write("show ip interface brief\n")
tn.write("show interfaces description\n")


print ("Executing commands")
tn2.write("\n\n\n\n")
tn2.write("\n\n\n\n")
tn2.write("enable\n")
tn2.write("show ip interface brief\n")
tn2.write("show interfaces description\n")
tn2.close()

I don't have the answer, but there is an impressive wrapper of telnetlib with logging capabilities in the robotframework source code, you could perhaps find ideas here.
