Working with remote directories using os and Paramiko
Learn to use the OS module in the Python Standard Library, and Paramiko, an open-source library to build secure connections to a remote server.
In this course, you will learn how to discover and manipulate files, both locally and on a remote server. Paramiko and OS help you examine and move files between two systems.
The OS module, available in the Python standard library, provides a portable way of using operating system dependent functionality, including:
- Query and modify environment variables
- Examine local files and directories and their attributes
- Manipulate paths
Paramiko is a combination of the Esperanto words for paranoid and friend. It's an open-source, third-party package that implements the SSHv2 protocol for a secure (encrypted and authenticated) connection to a remote server. Paramiko establishes an SFTP client to perform a variety of services, including transferring files between systems.
