how we can do this?
errm...couple of things.
you can only change the sftp port if you change the ssh port. you can do that in sshd_config
you can use iptables to limit from ip address
you can use /etc/security/access.conf to limit from ip address
you can use tcpwrappers since sshd has libwrap compiled in
ldd `which sshd` | grep wrap
libwrap.so.0 => /usr/lib/libwrap.so.0 (0x00159000)
forgot to add - once you have changed the sshd port, restart ssh and use
for future sftp actions
