unable to set ssh to use multiple ports, can't change f/22

/etc/ssh/ssh_config wrote:

Port 22
Port 1606

sudo /etc/rc.d/sshd restart 
output wrote:

:: Stopping Secure Shell Daemon                                          [DONE]
:: Starting Secure Shell Daemon                                          [DONE]

ssh localhost -p 1606
output wrote:

ssh: connect to host localhost port 1606: Connection refused

i comment out Port 22 in the config file, restart the service:

/etc/ssh/ssh_config wrote:

Port 1606

.: sudo /etc/rc.d/sshd restart                                        ~
:: Stopping Secure Shell Daemon                                          [DONE] 
:: Starting Secure Shell Daemon                                          [DONE] 
.: ssh localhost                                                              ~
ssh: connect to host localhost port 1606: Connection refused

strange, i didn't think it'd use 1606 instead of 22 so i try 22, still with Port 1606 as the only port listed in ssh_config

.: ssh localhost -p 22                                                        ~

Though ssh_config only lists port 1606, ssh only responds on 22, how'd this happen?
am expecting change with the wrong file?

thanks

Re: unable to set ssh to use multiple ports, can't change f/22

do a netstat -nl, and see if it is listening.
if it is, then it is probably tcp_wrappers blocking your access to it.
If it isn't, then ssh isn't listening.

EDIT: *reading the above more closely*
oh, and you want sshd_config for the daemon. ssh_config is for the client.
