Had a little nasty person trying to break my sshd on port 22.

I need to change and open a new port for sshd but i do not know how.

Can one of you kind people help me with this please

If you use good passwords, the SSH dictionary attacks are not a great concern. However, you can pass sshd the "-p 2222" flag to change the port from the default of 22 to (for example) 2222. To make this change permanent, add:

   sshd_flags="-p 2222"

...to /etc/rc.conf.
