I want to change the default ssh port, I have checked for the port which I want to set is opened in firewall as well I have placed the port at sshd_config file with protocol 2 but still the new port is not taken place.

Can anyone having any idea on this?

Hello,

While using the specified port are you getting connection refused or connection timed out? It will be also good if you paste sshd_config's first portion here so that I can check whether it is specified correctly.

You would not want to have two ports listed in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file, so please remove the port that is not the one you do not want to use, then restart sshd again:

Code:
/etc/init.d/sshd restart

Please contact your hosting provider to have them assist further then if the port isn't changing. We cannot really troubleshoot it further than what we have, and you cannot open a ticket with our support over SSH port issues because those aren't related to cPanel itself.
