    Hi, I understand the need for changing the console admin port to port 222, so that application-level features can utilize port 22.

    But one of the requirements of our NOC and InfoSec team is that each server in our data center can be discovered and scanned via SSH TCP 22. It doesn't seem they can specify unique ports in the enterprise tools they are using.

    Is there a way to change the admin port back to port 22? (We don't use the SCP/SFTP features of the application).

    The LF appliance v3.x uses the tcp/22 port for sftp service (FTPDrops and FTPDirs).
    Technically we can't prevent you from changing the port in the ssh configuration like on any other linux servers.
    But officially changing the port for the SSH service is not supported in Admin GUI and also it's not recommended. The default LF appliance also does not expect the ssh port has changed.
    In case you would decide to use FTPDir/FTPDrops in future it would not work as expected. There is also risk that within some future updates the ssh configuration will be rewritten to the LF defaults.
    For monitoring needs, in this case, would be better to use SNMP agent if possible.
