Note that with iptables you can leave ssh on port 22 but have it answer
on other ports.  See http://proxyobsession.net/?p=869

Or just change the entry in ./etc/sshd_config

# What ports, IPs and protocols we listen for
Port 22

From man(5)sshd_config :

Port:    Specifies the port number that sshd(8) listens on.  The default
is 22.  Multiple options of this type are permitted.  See also
