    ssh port problem--Solved

    I'm sure that I've overlooked something or done something silly, but whenever I try to connect ssh with a different port (specified in sshd_config) than the standard port 22, the terminal I'm trying to connect with just hangs.

    On the command:
    ssh -p 3497 user@

    I get no response.

    I can connect when I leave it (in both sshd_config and on the terminal) at the default port, port 22, but with no other port, apparently.

    Also, I scanned through /etc/services to see which ones may be in use elsewhere.

    I have two sshd on my firewall. One listens on port 22 to the internal network, one listens to port x to the outside. The only thing I changed was to create a second sshd_config which mainly has a different 'Port x' line. I expect that's what you did. Is there any FW in between the systems which passes port 22 but not port x?

    Are you firewalled? Maybe port 22 is open, and the others aren't. Did you restart sshd after making the changes (sorry, have to ask )

    Aha! I didn't open the port I was using on the firewall.

    That was it. I knew it was something I had just overlooked.
