Problems with OpenSSH on Windows - Cannot change Port number from 22 to 443
Posted on 2006-10-24
I've installed OpennSSH for Windows on my home-machine (XP) in order to get a VNC connection via Secure SSH tunnel to this machine. The client I use is PUTTY.
As long as I can use the port 22 everything works fine. But sometimes my client PUTTY is behind a firewall and only the ports 80 or 443 are possible to use. Thus I tried to change the port of my OpenSSH Server from 22 to 443. I edited the sshd_config file (not ssh_config!) and changed the port number from 22 to 443. After that I restarted the OpenSSh Server. The result is, that I don't get an connection on port 443 but still on port 22!! I assume that OpenSSH doesn't care about the entry in the sshd_config file and is still listening to port 22. Where is the place to change the port for OpenSSH?
Thanx a lot in advance!
