This process was not very intuitive and not documented (that I could find) so I wanted to help in case others had this confusion.  SSH is not enabled by factory default.

  1. Use your web browser to Login to the web interface as usual.
  2. Click ‘Security’ tab > Access tab > SSH > Host keys management.
  3. Click “Generate RSA keys” and “Generate DSA keys” then click ‘Apply’.
  4. Now  click the parent (Security > Access > SSH > SSH configuration)
  5. Click “SSH admin mode = enable”  and “SSH version 2” then click ‘Apply’
  6. Test using free ‘Putty’ app or similar SSH app.

See two screenshots below:
