Defaulting SSH to a non-standard host port

If the SSH server on a host has been configured to listen on a non-standard port for example port 92 then normally we would connect with:

ssh -p 92 theserver.tld

Remembering and typing that -p 92 switch can be a pain in the |
Configuring ssh on the client can ease the pain:

vi /etc/ssh/ssh_config

Add the follow lines above Host *

Host theserver.tld
Port 92
