Python 3.4 Paramiko on Windows

Paramiko is a native SSHv2 implementation for Python. It can easily be installed on Linux with a simple pip install paramiko command. However, on Windows it’s a little bit more difficult as it requires the pycrypto package that cannot be installed via pip.

  1. Download pycrypto for Windows.

  2. After you install pycrypto for your architecture of Python, fire up IDLE and excute import Crypto. If you get no errors, it has been successfully installed.

  3. Next, open a Command Prompt and cd over to C:\Python34\Scripts.

  4. Run, pip install paramiko.

Hopefully you get no errors while installing, and importing paramiko works correctly.
