Hi
I changed port for ssh on one server and now I get status warnings all the time about SSH being restarted.

I did the change according to the documentation:

I opened up /etc/ssh/sshd_config and changed the port in there and restarted SSH.
It works fine and I can log in using the new port

But, after I did this, I keep getting "Status warnings" saying:
SSH [restarted - 8 events]

What did I miss?

OK, found the reason to this.

tailwatchd has to be restarted after port is changed.

case closed
