Within the configuration file, I have whitelisted certain ports which are being detected as hidden (i.e. i've blocked all traffic on said hidden port within an iptables firewall).
Having said that, the system does not read the change I made to the config file, which says to whitelist the port it detects, and as such continues to return a warning about the now-whitelisted port. Is there a way to resolve this? Otherwise, this is indeed a bug (because by editing the configuration file to change the option for allowing root login in the sshd_config file, and the edit I made to that did indeed take).
Attached are the config file I have, as well as the log from the last scan.
