I am not sure about your specific HP switch, but Foundry Networks is 
HP's OEM.  Foundry does not fully implement SSH on their own switches.  
I can use PuTTY to SSH into a Foundry switch, but cannot use any other 
features of SSH to exact any form of control or command usage.

However, you should be able to use SNMP easily or telnet.  I wish 
Foundry supported SSH better.
