Changing the default port for SSH


How to change the default port for SSH?

Solution :

Open the port (which you want to use for SSH) in the server firewall and restart the firewall to apply the change.
Then, open the configuration file /etc/ssh/sshd_config using your favorite editor and change :

#Port 22
to
Port x

Replace ‘x’ with the required port number.

Restart sshd :

/etc/init.d/sshd restart
