I regularly have to SSH into my servers, and on most of the ones I connect to the SSH server is running on a non-standard port for obvious security reasons. I used to include the port number manually in the SSH command, for example:
ssh seymour.dennistt.com -p 922
This worked… as long as I remembered to type the port number in, which was probably less than half the time on the first go. So I finally got tired of having to retype the command with the port number in it. Luckily you can create a SSH client configuration file which will remember this for you, and even give you a shortcut.
