Silkworm 2800 telnet/ssh connection refused

I have 4 Silkworm 2800 switches (Fabric OS v2.6.2) all on same subnet, and one of them is now refusing ssh and telnet connections. I do not even get a login prompt, using putty or otherwise. There is no firewall between me and the switches. Directly connecting a laptop with crossover cable to ethernet port yields no response either.

Otherwise this switch is healthy and pingable, and I can use http for basic admin purposes. I used the front panel to "close telnet" many times, but that doesn't seem to help.

Any ideas?
