In the case of an off-the-shelf sshd running on an unknown port it's 
trivial to discover with a simple carriage return:

07:48:51 # telnet <ip-address> 22
Trying <ip-address>...
Connected to (<ip-address>).
Escape character is '^]'.

SSH-1.99-OpenSSH_3.5p1
Protocol mismatch.
Connection closed by foreign host.
