Well SCP uses SSH, so you could policy NAT the traffic from the router bound for port 22  to the alternate port on the 
SCP server.  I'm labbing it out right now though to see if there is a better way.

Alright Cisco gurus, I have a question that has been stumping me.  When using Cisco's Secure Copy command (scp), how do 
you direct it to use an alternate port? For example to use scp to copy the startup configuration file you use: copy 
startup-config scp:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. It will then prompt you for the rest of the information but sadly does not prompt 
you for port number.  I thought it would be something simple as scp:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:pp, but alas, that did not work.  I 
scoured the online documents and even contacted cisco tech support but could not get an answer. Surely there has got to 
be a simple way to identify a different port.
