22.3.4. Procedure – Using inband selection and nonstandard ports with OpenSSH

The following steps provide instructions for establishing SSH connections with servers that are listening on a non-standard port (the Inband destination selection > Targets > Port option is not 22), and the port number targeted by the clients is also a non-standard port (the To > Port option of the Connection Policy).

  1. Enter the following command:

    # ssh -p <scb_port> <username>@<server>:<port>@<scb>

    ...where <scb_port> is the port number of PSM, <username> is the username on the target server, <server:port> is the target server's hostname (or IP address), <port> is the target server's port number, and <scb> is the hostname (or IP address) of PSM.

    Example: 

    Assuming the following values:

    • The username is training1

    • The target server is 192.168.60.100

    • The target server is listening on port 2121

    • The PSM server is scb

    • The PSM server is listening on port 4444

    You can enter the following command:

    # ssh -p 4444 training1@192.168.60.100:2121@scb

  2. Alternative approach:

    1. Enter only the hostname (or IP address, depending on your configuration) and port number of PSM with the following command:

      # ssh -p <scb_port> <scb>

    2. At the login prompt, provide the username on the target server, and the target server's hostname (or IP address) and port number using the <username>@<server>:<port> format
