Betreff: How to configure SSH not to use privileged ports

Hi Managers,

i am using Solaris 9 with Sun_SSH_1.0.

If I connect to a machine with OpenSSH in the internet, our firewall blocks
the connection, because Suns SSH is using the privileged Port 1023 which our
firewall doesn`t allow.
If I use "ssh -P user@machine" everything is fine.

My problem is, I have to scp to this machine.
I know, scp is using the configuration of ssh, but I didn4t find a option in
"/etc/ssh/ssh_config" where to configure.

Can anybody tell me the option for "/etc/ssh/ssh_config" or the passing
for "scp -o ....." please.

Thanks in advance.

Mit freundlichen Gr|ssen / Kind regards
