I seem to be having a connection issue with my Netapp simulator. For example,
I can ping the Storage system from my Admin host
Nates-MacBook-Pro:/ betterplace$ ping NetappPING netapp.hsd1.ca.comcast.net (188.8.131.52): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 184.108.40.206: icmp_seq=0 ttl=51 time=36.699 ms
64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=1 ttl=51 time=37.365 ms
64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=2 ttl=51 time=39.880 ms
I can ping my admin host from the storage simulator
Netapp> ping 192.168.0.10
192.168.0.10 is alive
Telnet hangs and timesout
Nates-MacBook-Pro:/ betterplace$ telnet Netapp
ssh returns an error message
Nates-MacBook-Pro:/ betterplace$ ssh Netapp
ssh: connect to host Netapp port 22: Connection refused
Both ssh v1 and v2 are enabled and the keys have been generated.
I think because of this error, I am not able to mount any of the exported volumes on my admin host. Can anyone offer any advice?

Which version of the sumulator 7.x or 8.x?
You didn't specify if the simulator was running in a VM, but I'm assuming it is. The fact that you can successfully ping bi-directionally between the sim and your MacBook, but not access certain ports (23 for telnet or 22 for ssh) makes me suspect your network interface has a firewall enabled on it. If the simulator is in a VM, make sure the guest O/S doesn't have a firewall enabled, or make sure ports for SSH, NDMP, HTTP, HTTPS, and SNMP are open.
If you're positive a firewall isn't the issue, provide more details about your environment's configuration.
