I’d like to use a non-standard port for ssh logins. When I change /etc/sshd_config so that Port nn is my new port I cannot even restart ssh.
I’ve been around Linux for some time but I have not had occasion to use either the firewall or selinux. So please don’t suggest I change either of these because frankly I don’t know how. I require details.
Here is an article from google on how to set a different port: https://computingforgeeks.com/change-ssh-port-centos-rhel-fedora-with-selinux/
It also tells you how to set selinux to use that new port. That is most likely the reason why it failed to restart after being changed. Steps 3 and 4 address selinux and the firewall. Steps 2 and 5 address changing the ssh config and restarting it.
Indeed. Process starts. Tries to listen on port. SELinux says: “no”. Process could run without listening that port, or die. Sshd does die.
@dmfwi If you do have Rocky 9, then do not edit
/etc/ssh/sshd_config – add a new
*.conf file into
/etc/ssh/sshd_config.d/ and you choices in it.
