I changed the default ssh port in SL, and before it works you have to edited the iptables/firewall. I edited the firewall using system-config-firewall-tui

on Hybrid's advice and restarted the service. When connecting:


ssh -p 1234 user@ip


I still get connection refused. I did check the vi /etc/sysconfig/iptables


And it nicely made a new entry under port 22 mentioning my custom ssh port.

LOL thanks Hybrid!! It worked I was switching back and forth between configs. That I forgot to switch this one config file. It works now. Thanks for that great tip about the system-config-firewall-tui

Great tool!!
