Rsync with different SSH port

Some Linux servers were security hardened by changing the default SSH port from port 22 to a different port number. To use rsync with a different SSH port, add ‘ssh -p 12345’ in the rsync parameters. Push rsync -azvP -e 'ssh -p 12345' SOURCE USER@HOST:DEST Pull rsync -azvP -e 'ssh -p 12345' USER@HOST:SOURCE DEST
