SSH listen on 443

February 4, 2014 1.9k views
Hi, I would like my SSH server (sshd) on my CentOS 6.5 droplet to listen to more than one port. So, I specified 2 ports, 22, and 443. Connecting to it via port 22 works fine, but 443 doesn't. I made sure that the firewall wasn't the issue by disabling it, even though I think it was configured correctly. I swapped out 443 in my configuration for any other port (80, 2222, 2223, etc.) and all those ports work for connecting to the ssh server...just 443 doesn't...it's weird. I checked that no other servers are holding onto that port (443) either...after starting up sshd, I ran a netstat and saw that it was listening on 443...it just never responds to the request from the SSH client. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? Thanks... Kevin
