Custom SSH Ports On Forge

Taylor Otwell

Today we are launching support for custom SSH ports on Forge. Previously, all SSH traffic from Forge used the default port 22. Beginning today, you are able to customize this port when creating a Custom VPS:

In addition, using the server’s “Meta” tab, you may adjust the SSH port for existing custom VPS servers as well as existing first-party servers on DigitalOcean, Linode, AWS, and Vultr:

Note: This only changes the SSH port Forge uses to connect to your server. You will still need to open and configure this port as the default SSH port for your server.

If you don’t have a Forge account, now is a great time to sign up. Forge allows you to painlessly create and manage PHP 7.2 servers which include MySQL, Redis, Memcached, and everything else you need to run robust, modern Laravel applications.
