  • Something along these lines:
                Dim connInfo As New Renci.SshNet.PasswordConnectionInfo("", "admin", "admin")
                Dim cmd As Renci.SshNet.SshCommand
                Using sshClient As New Renci.SshNet.SshClient(connInfo)
                    cmd = sshClient.RunCommand("set interfaces ge-0/0/1 disable")
                End Using
    Renci SSH.NET must be added as a reference to the project. The above is from an older project so the syntax and possibly the requirements are different now.
