Provide out of band console access via ssh

While the current web-based console is ok, I would like to be able to ssh into the console using my own tools, instead of the website. Make it accessible via alternate ports, such as 443, as well.

    Need some tools to change ssh port from 22 to any other. I'm can't use DigitalOcean from work before change port. (I'm don't have access to 22 port becase of firewall and corporative polytics)

    The web based console always works for me when I don't need it, and almost never works when I do need it. Linode has this figured out quite well. https://www.linode.com/docs/networking/using-the-linode-shell-lish

    It is also more convenient. e.g. I can paste hard to type passwords quicker. Also has better behaivour when tons of output is printed at the console.
