Yes, it possible to change or use a different ssh port when using rsync command on Linux or Unix-like operating systems. If your ssh server is running on TCP port # 5000
, try the following command to change port number. It is pretty simple command:
sync -av -e 'ssh -p PORT-NUMBER-HERE' /path/to/source email@example.com
Use a different ssh port when using rsync
In this example, I am going to backup /home/vivek/ directory to the server called server1.nixcraft.net.in at TCP port number 5000, enter:
rsync -av -e 'ssh -p 5000' /home/vivek firstname.lastname@example.org
