Installation is handled by Python’s standard setuptools library and pip.

Pip Install

pip install parallel-ssh

If pip is not available on your Python platform, see this installation guide.

Old Python Versions

1.1.x and above releases are not guaranteed to be compatible with Python 2.6.

If you are running a deprecated Python version such as 2.6 you may need to install an older version of parallel-ssh that is compatible with that Python platform.

For example, to install the 1.0.0 version, run the following.

pip install parallel-ssh==1.0.0

1.0.0 is compatible with all Python versions over or equal to 2.6, including all of the 3.x series.

Older versions such as 0.70.x are compatible with Python 2.5 and 2.x but not the 3.x series.

Source Code

Parallel-SSH is hosted on GitHub and the repository can be cloned with the following

git clone

To install from source run:

python install

Or with pip‘s development mode which will ensure local changes are made available:

pip install -e .
