But it usen't to be that way, I think it has changed some time ago? I 
remember the "port" option was actually working. 

And, Lars mentiones a ~/.ssh/ directory, but user "smokeping" doesn't
seem to have a /home/smokeping directory?

If so, that means we have to change the system ssh_config file (the
one in /etc/ssh/ directory)?

Thanks to anybody who can clarify
