  • Basic
object.Port [= value
The Port(object,value) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type wodSSHD.
valueA Long value.


Port property specifies what local port is used for accepting new connections. Its default value 22 is well known and 'registered' for usage of SSH protocol applications, but in specific cases you might want to change it to something else. If you do so, please notify users that will use your server for new port number.

When you choose this value, please be sure that selected port is 'not taken' by some other application. If you're not sure if it's available or not, easiest way to find out is to execute 'netstat -a' from command prompt and check if there's '22' value listed in 'Local Address' column. In default installations of all Windows operating systems, no SSH server will be installed so you don't have to worry about this.

You cannot change value of this property when your server is running. If you want to change it, first Stop the server, change the port, and then Start it again. If there are any users connected at that time, they will be disconnected.
