Can't login with putty?

I can login to our 2 fabrics using web/java console, but when I try to putty, I do not even get a login prompt.

I've looked through switch admin, and don't see a place either enable or disable SSH - where should I look to try to trouble-shoot this?

Check if the switch has IPfilter configured. You may have a rule preventing you from SSH'ing the switch.

Re: Can't login with putty?

it looks like someone used ipfilter policy to block access to switch via telnet

just login via serial and check policy ,
