From the server, see port 22 is blocked

Interesting ports on
22/tcp  filtered ssh ------------------> see
80/tcp  filtered http
443/tcp filtered https

This is blocked on cisco switch but I dont have any clue how this is done.

I know that vlan is configured on switch.

vlan 54
   ip ospf area
   vrrp vrid 54
      priority 255

Please let me know how to unblock ssh port 22 access on this switch?

Additional Update switch is HP Procurve 2910al-24G. client which is not able to accessing this server via switch are on different vlan.

vlan 54 is for ILO IP's only

Might help us if you told us what specific switch it was and what code it was running on, maybe even list your ACLs? –  Chopper3 Apr 16 '12 at 11:08
