Changing SSH port in sshd config file causes Putty and Filezilla not to function
I’ve been successfully communicating with my droplet using encypted keys for some time. In order to improve security I changed the ssh port from the standard 22 to a different port number. Now I can’t access my droplet via Putty or Filezilla.
I did a restart of sshd and I modified Putty by changing the port there as well.( Filezilla says it gets the port from the server). Any idea what may be wrong ?
