Script for pulling configuration

Not applicable

Hi, can someone help me with creating a non interactive script which logs in to the device and pulls configuration.

I tried this, but it hangs after passing the password.

ssh <username>@<firewall_name> "show config running"

It runs fine when doing it interactively on putty.


L5 Sessionator


The following script did the trick for me:

user1@ubuntuBOX189:~$ cat

#! /bin/bash

ssh -t -t admin@ << EOF

set cli pager off

show config running



Let me know if it works for you
