Goal

Does HP LTO-4 FC (FW:H58S) support SSH(port:22) connection when using VOP 2.0? 

The following description from Security Guide.
I read it as that 'all legacy tape drives (including LTO4) do not support SSH connection
even though using VOP 2.0', is my understanding correct?

Oracle StorageTek Virtual Operator Panel   Security Guide 2.0 (E37312-01)
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E37055_01/en/E37312_01/E37312_01.pdf

In the document, we can see follows
---The Security Model---
Because the intended environment for VOP is a secure, data center environment, the security model for VOP is minimal, and depends on the computer and network being physically secure.
For legacy tape drives (for example, StorageTek 9840D, T10000C, IBM LTO5, HP LTO5, and earlier) the protocols used are telnet (port 23) and FTP (port 20, 21), which are unencrypted.
Beginning with this release (VOP 2.0), and future drives which support it, SSH and SFTP are the defaults.
