That's a great solution.

Thankyou.

I think the simplest solution is to get sshd to listen on both ports. No
need for complicated NATting or other fancy stuff. Once sshd is
listening to both ports you can restrict port 22 to the subnet using
iptables, and leave port 5000 open.

To get sshd to listen to multiple ports use two Port options in
/etc/sshd_config, i.e. two lines, one with "Port 22" and another with
"Port 5000".

This is what I do, and it works.
