 Higher port is just great
Author: dobermann 
Date:   04-12-06 08:43

I use higher ports for my sshds since I first had a "public server".
I was scanned and brute forced all the time...
Now the auth_log is just looking good :]

Higher port + auth key only = good security (the only matter is to remind which server has which port)
