There was a lot of information given to you about this, but one piece I didn't 
see.  If you are using SSH then why not switch from password authentication 
to Key authentication?  Thus should someone figure out what port you are 
using, and today it isn't that hard with the many tools out there, they still 
will not be able to connect.
