10.4: Change the default sshd port
Authored by: macshome on Jul 19, '05 09:27:03AM

Running ssh on a different port though will stop the ENDLESS ssh scans that seem to blight the internet these days from pounding your Mac.

It, as well as disabling ssh login for root, will prevent OD replica _creation_ on Mac OS X Server, so watch out for that. Once you have a replica created you can re-diddle ssh.
