Backup to SSH with non-standard port

    Greetings,

    I've been trying to setup a filesystem backup job with Webmin 1.610.  The backup job is supposed to save the backup to an SSH server which runs on another server that has a non-standard port number for SSH.

    Apparently the ability to specify a port number was introduced in 1.390 I believe, but there's no documentation on how to do this.  When I try entering the standard <ip address>:<port> in the host field, I get an error "Failed to save backup : Missing or invalid host to backup to".

    Has anyone successfully got this to work? and if so, how?

    Thank you very much!

    I have the same problem in 1.613. Anyone found the way to do this right ?
