I am using the Fedora 9 here for this explaination.
I tried to sftp on remote server for port no 2202. I got the following error on command prompt.
[purab@localhost ~]$ sftp email@example.com -oPort=2202
Connecting to example.net…
ssh: connect to host stylo.smartsourcingglobal.net port 22: No route to host
Couldn’t read packet: Connection reset by peer
Then i tried the following command, than I able to make connection with port
[purab@localhost ~]$ sftp -oPort=2202 firstname.lastname@example.org
