I tried to Google this and I found results. Either this is not very documented, either there's something I don't understand but should.

It seems like it may be port 9876 like in the documentation, and I may wrongly assume that it doesn't use the same port as regular SSH.

SSHFS uses the same port interface which is used by the SSH protocol port 22.

Here is a snippet from Wiki:

In computing, SSHFS (SSH Filesystem) is a filesystem client to mount and interact with directories and files located on a remote server or workstation over a normal ssh connection.
