Following these instructions but Step 3 does not work when the SSH port is not port 22: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-vnc-on-ubuntu-20-04

Hello, @en1apcw

Have you tried to specify the custom ssh port in the command in the example? The -p <port> option can be used to specify the port number to connect to when using the ssh command on Linux.

Can you please share what is the output that you get when you execute the ssh command?
