To enable SSH on Dell Networking N-series (formerly known as Dell PowerConnect), you first have to generate the required private RSA and DSA keys. If you don't, you're met with a very secretive error message:

SSH could not be enabled.

To generate the keys, and configure and enable SSH, log on to the switch using the console cable or log on through Telnet:

Go into EXEC mode, then in CONFIG mode:

enable
configure

Generate both the RSA and DSA keys:

crypto key generate rsa
crypto key generate dsa

Now, you can enable the SSH server:

ip ssh server

Optionally: you can also change the protocol and/or default listen port:

ip ssh protocol 2
ip ssh port 22

Optionally: after enabling SSH, you can optionally disable Telnet:

ip telnet server disable

Go back to EXEC mode and write the changes to flash:

exit
write
