Python: Keyboard Interactive Authentication prompt when password already provided.

Hi All,

I'm trying to connect to multiple hosts via SSH loaded from a text file after specifying a password. The SSH connection string is built successfully with the password I eneter, but I still seem to be getting a Keyboard Interactive Authentication prompt for each device. How can I alter the code below so it just connects with the password I provide to every device?


import os

def main():
    # Obtain currently logged on ID from the OS.
    uID = os.getenv('USERNAME')
    # Prompt for password.
    passWd = crt.Dialog.Prompt("Please enter your password:", "Login", "", True)
    # Obtain source hosts text file.
    fileName = crt.Dialog.FileOpenDialog(title="Please select a text file.", filter="Text Files (*.txt)|*.txt||")
    f=open(fileName, 'r')
    # Validation: Check password isn't empty.
    if passWd == "":
      youShallNotPass = crt.Dialog.MessageBox("Enter a valid password" ["Please try again."])
      # Build a command-line string to pass to the Connect method.
      for line in f:
        host = line
        cmd = "/SSH2 /L %s /PASSWORD %s /C 3DES /M MD5 %s" % (uID, passWd, str(host.strip()))
        myTab = crt.Session.ConnectInTab(cmd)
