Did a quick google, but not finding it on my rootfs that I built, nor on my ubuntu system,
but there are some references on the net to changing the port number in /etc/ssh/sshd_config for the ssh demon configuration file wherein you can change what port number ssh listens on.

The only file I find on my ubuntu sustem is /etc/ssh/ssh_config which is the client fonig file to tell it what port on the remote system to ask for ssh services on.

I'm also assuming you restarted the sshd daemon after making the change to /etc/services, yes?  Though at this point I'm not sure that will do it for you either.

I tried that but it is still listening to 22 only.
