Enabling SSH on a different port

To enable SSH on a different port, the following steps are to be followed

1. Opening the target port on your VPS firewall : Your VPS comes with the APF firewall installed, so you will need to open up the port at the firewall

This can be done by editing the /etc/apf/conf.apf

and search for an entry within conf.apf as


and add the intended port to this list

Save the state of the firewall and restart the service using the commands

apf -s
/etc/init.d/apf restart

2. Edit the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config

change the entry

Port 22

to the intended destination port where SSH should be listening.

3. Edit the file /etc/services

hash the entry

ssh            22/tcp         #SSH Remote Login Protocol
ssh            22/udp         #SSH Remote Login Protocol
#ssh            22/tcp         #SSH Remote Login Protocol
#ssh            22/udp         #SSH Remote Login Protocol

and place the entry at the destined port

ssh           portnumber/tcp
ssh           portnumber/udp

Restart the SSH daemon using the command

~ /etc/init.d/sshd restart

You will be able to access SSH now using

ssh root@vps -p portnumber
