Hi!

I don't have to use the "security through obscurity" approach by
running my ssh daemon on a different port. Sure, it will stop scripted
attacks, but it breaks rsync et al.

It is not security through obscurity, it is load reduction by obscurity. And
it does not break rsync if you use the proper syntax or correctly configure
your ssh-client.

Matthias
