Are you sure that the ALOM firmware you have is new enough
to support the ssh function?

I have a V240 that I had to upgrade the firmware on before the ssh
stuff worked.  Now I have access both via the serial port into
the ALOM, as well as ssh into the ALOM, and then attach to the
serial port of the machine.

My notes indicate that until the version 1.6.x firmware for the ALOM,
only the serial port access was available.  The support for ssh was
added in the 1.6.x firmware - this matches my experience on the V240,
where it had ALOM firmware 1.5.1 originally, when I bought the machine.
