I think you were using the base system's ssh installation before (which
is located in /usr ). When you installed the OpenSSH port, you got a second
installation in /usr/local.
Please use `which ssh' and `which sshd' in order to confirm this
assumption. If it is true, then you have the following options:
1. Switch to the ports ssh -> since you already installed the port, you
only need to remove your ssh stuff in /usr, e.g. /usr/bin/ssh,
/usr/sbin/sshd, (kill the sshd before deleting it, but this will only
work if you are not currently logged in via ssh :-)...
Additionally, you have to tell the system to use the sshd in /usr/local,
so you should add the following line to /etc/rc.conf
In order to preserve your settings from the base system, you should
carefully merge the configuration files in /usr/local/etc/ssh with your old
ones in /etc/ssh.
You should also put NO_OPENSSH=true into /etc/make.conf in order to
exclude OpenSSH from the following buildworlds.
2. Patch your base system's ssh as described here:
You should also delete the port in order to prevent future confusion
3. Delete the ssh port, and re-install it with PREFIX=/usr. This will
overwrite your base system's ssh, but I don't know whether this solution
is supported, and I don't think that it is the cleanest one...
NO_OPENSSH=true in make.conf is of course also required.
I'd recommend to employ either option 1 or 2.
