roslaunch <machine> tag - custom ssh port

is there currently any way to specify a custom ssh port on a remote <machine> target? I tried to specify an alias (from .ssh/config) and address="fqdn:port" but none works (cannot resolve host address for machine:port (or ALIAS)).

...out of curiosity, why do you need a custom ssh port? I can't (off the top of my head) think of why you'd need one.

well I would like to use 22, but the external partner only provides access at a custom port... :(

roslaunch should take into account your ssh configuration file. If this is not the case, please comment on this ticket.
