Changing listening port for SSH on IDS

What command would I use to change the listening port on a 4200 series IDS? I have it listening on another port, and when I applied the S189/S190 update, it changed SSH back to port 22.

Just out of curiosity too, does anyone know what else the S189/S190 updates change?

Thanks,

Jim

Re: Changing listening port for SSH on IDS

Cisco only supports configurations using the CLI. The ssh port cannot be changed via the CLI. Changing system config files via the service account is not a good idea and not supported.

Re: Changing listening port for SSH on IDS

After looking around, I think it may be the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file that needs to be modified. However, I wanted to double check that with the community. If I modify that file and restart ssh, will I mess anything up and lock myself out of remote access?

Thanks!!
