enable ssh 6510 FOS7.x

I am trying to work out how to enable ssh access and disable telnet to a bunch of 6510 FC switches running FOS 7.x.. A very simple task in most cases, howerver I cannot locate how to do this with these devices. The FOS 7.x admin guide is very vague on this subject.... I want simple ssh access.. Please can someone provide some assistance?

Block telnet with ipfilter (perhaps block http too then?).

Perhaps there is a rule already blocking ssh if that is not working.

No ipfilter rule blocking ssh, I have chekced this. Also, this is an out of the box config so it is not as if someone has blocked / turned off ssh in the past...

Anymore ideas ?

Not me. Just some vague like checking in "configure", maybe there's something in there. In some older one could log on as root and try to start it manually. Perhaps a reset of the switch would be in order? Fabric OS update. What version are you running now? FIPS or something like that enabled and blocking somehow? Restart? =)
