    I've changed the ssh port on my server, but I can't connect to that port from work (firewall blocks pretty much everything). I was trying to connect to ssh through cPanel (SSH/Shell Access), but it's trying to connect on port 22. Is there a way to change the port that cPanel uses to connect to something else?

    Edit the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file and change the port listed.

    Right, I've done that already. ssh is working just fine on the different port.

    But, when I try to connect via cPanel (using the SSH/Shell Access function) it goes to port 22.

    That's just what I'm looking for, thanks.

    I searched but didn't come across that thread. :eek:
