the non std port advice is not worth much, security through

wrong. non standard port helps quite well against automated scans.
most targets nowadays are searched via automated scans. if you are
painted red, you get attention. this is first step - stay gray. but if
you are already set up as a target, this would not help you. this
helps you NOT getting up as target for someone, who just searching
some servers for fun - scriptkiddies.
