I'm trying to pull changes from a server which has sshd on port 2345 and an hg server listening locally on port 5432. I already have certifcate-based authentication for ssh, so there no need for a password.

This doesn't work:

hg -v pull ssh:// -p 5432

since the pull command apparently takes the port number from where I assumed ssh would be taking it...

Any ideas how to do this?

The simplest thing would be to put an entry in ~/.ssh/config, something like:

Port 2345

You just need

hg -v pull ssh://   


hg -v pull ssh:// 

-p is not a recognized option for hg pull. Note your path syntax above is also wrong

hg -v pull ssh://

is not correct syntax.
