            Bug ID: 3261
           Summary: difficulty looking up default SSH port in
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 8.4p1
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P5
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: unassigned-bugs at mindrot.org
          Reporter: frederik-openssh at ofb.net

Just found it a bit strange that the default SSH port is not in the
main manual page:

    $ cat /etc/services| grep -w '^ssh'
    ssh                22/tcp
    ssh                22/udp
    ssh                22/sctp
    ssh-mgmt        17235/tcp
    ssh-mgmt        17235/udp
    $ man ssh |grep -w port | wc -l
    $ man ssh | grep 22
    [1]$ man ssh | grep etc/services
    [1]$ man ssh_config |grep -w 22
             fault is 22.

What is the expected manner in which a new user learns this

It is so basic that I would have put it in the second paragraph of the
manual page.
