How to use SCP on the private Vmotion network

I have a production network with production IP addresses. I have a Vmotion vSwitch setup using 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2 on 2 ESX 3.5 servers. Vmotion works great. I want to be able to use SCP on the 10.x network however it comes up with connection refused. I CAN use SCP on the production IP, so SSH is enabled!!! however it doesnt seem to be enabled on the 10.x network. I CAN NOT use the production network for SCP with all the data I want to move. On the 10.x vSwitch I did uncheck "enable vmotion" and rebooted the VMware ESX 3.5 servers but I still get connection refused. I have tried to disable the firewall, yet I can not get it to work on the 10.x NIC side but works fine on the production side. The production network was the first to be setup and the 10.x was set up a year later to implement vmotion, if that matters

firewall command:
esxcfg-firewall -allowOutgoing
esxcfg-firewall -allowIncoming

VMotion is a VMKernel Port you can't connect to it for SCP/SSH. What you will need to do is add a service console port such as 10.0.0.10 and 10.0.0.20 --example.  Once you add a service console you can now use this subnet to SCP as you wish.

service console port worked. I created this and moved the NIC's to the service console ports and was able to connect to SCP and start the data moves - thanks!
