    I would like to know if I changed the port in the sshd_config file and everything is working for root correctly for ssh.

    But if I try and login in a client's a account and click Shell Access then click the "Connect using JAva Telnet" it still uses port 22 there?

    Any ideas how to change that or what is the correct way in doing this?

    Hello :)

    There are several known issues with the Java Telnet Application in cPanel. It's scheduled for removal from cPanel in version 11.40. I recommend using a third-party application such as Putty (if you use Windows) for SSH purposes.

    Thank you.
