Configuring SSH on a non-standard port

Configuring SSh on a non-standard port

Here are the steps to configure SSH to run on a non-standard port other than 22.

1. Open the SSH configuration file /etc/ssh/sshd_config

2. Browse to the following line:

    # Port 22

3. Uncomment and edit this line to reflect the new port settings.

    eg: Port 2222 (this can be set to any non standard port)

4. Save and quit the file, and restart ssh.

    # /etc/init.d/ssh restart
