This question is similar to the question here, about changing the sshd port on Mac OSX, but instead of changing the port number, I want to change the listen address of my Mac's ssh server. Setting it in
/etc/sshd_config doesn't work (just like it doesn't work for port numbers).
According to the
man page on
On Mac OS X, sshd is started on demand by launchd(8). The specification of the address on which sshd will listen is given in the launchd.plist(5) file /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ssh.plist. The values of ListenAddress and Port are only used when sshd is run from the command line. Use launchctl(1) to unload and load the plist file. The port number on which sshd listens can be set by changing the value of the SockServiceName key in the plist file.
This answer shows how to set
SockServiceName to change the port number, but I'm unclear on how to change the listen address.
Deos anyone know how?
