NetApp BMC ssh error?

snyderkv asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I configured the BMC on my NetApp 2040 system and have ping connectivity to and from NetApp and my workstation including the gateways.

For some reason, when I putty to the BMC, I get error:

"Network error: Connection refused by peer"

Not sure what this means. The switch itself is configured for switchport vlan access xx and ping works.

BMC status on the netapp shows everything is there and can ping itself.

Any suggestions?
