I want to change the default port for sshd daemon in Mac OS X 10.6

Changing the sshd_config file seems to be useless, I suppose becouse of sshd is started by launchd.

I'm looking for the real solution, not a workaround as google is full :)

Any suggestion?

There's a similar question on serverfault: How to change sshd port on Mac OS X?. Maybe you'll find more information there. – alex Sep 22 '09 at 9:49

Found the solution, after looking to launchd.plist man.

As pointed out by @alex, there is the same question on SF. I answered there.

Sorry for not having seen it on SF, but it seems to me that it is a SU related question. :)

I think it's more serverfault. Actually, to me, anything that deals with ports and ssh is serverfault :) – alex Sep 22 '09 at 10:01
