How to change SSH port?
« on: August 03, 2015, 03:51:54 PM »
Hello folks,

In order to change SSH port you will have to edit sshd_config file.

Quote
#vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Quote
Change #Port 22 to some other port and uncomment it

You can set it like 8957 or anything that you want. This will secure your servers from brute forcers that will try to crack your ssh password.

That's all, Enjoy !!!
