Why not simply have sshd listen on 2 ports and skip need for port
Just uncomment the "Port 22" line in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
and add a second line with the second port
so it would look like
and restart sshd
with this all access that expects port 22 will continue to work,
and you can also access it through the new 5122 port.
Simple and effective, and no portforwarding needed.
