    Why cannot change SSH port?

    I changed the SSH port in the configuration file to something else, for example 1234, but when I try to connect to SSH with that port, it does not connect.

    No other program is using that port
    The firewall is not blocking the port
    SELinux is disabled

    What else could be the problem?

    Probably forgot to restart sshd afterwards.

    That's my guess as well - no reason for it not to work based upon everything they said they checked to make sure it wasn't being blocked.

    No that's not it.

    I edited ssh_config instead of sshd_config
