Connecting to devices on different tcp port (SSH protocol)
It doesn't look like it, but can HP-NA be customized to connect to client-devices (eg. during a initial discovery) using SSH but then on port ... let's say 3005 ? In stead of the default 22 ? It sure cannot be done in the GUI, but perhaps some "under-the-hood" properties file can be adapted ?
But ... this is only for a set (+- 160) devices we are looking to integrate. Other thousands of devices must keep using the good 'old standard TCP/22 for SSH connections.
May not be following your question, but figured I'd mention this hoping it'd help:
If your ~160 devices use the same password rule (or could), you could set a device access setting. Edit the rule, click on show device access settings, click on one of the drop down boxes, pick ssh port and set your port. I "think" this will get NA to connect to a device using your specified port.
So, as an exmaple, I set it to 1234:
Connect - Attempting connection via SSH to 10.14.3.2 (port 1234)
Error: Failed to connect via SSH to 10.14.3.2 on port 1234 Connection refused.
It's going to fail for me, as the device wouldn't expect it, but just shows what I think you're looking for.
Hope this helps,
