Custom Port for Clusters

New to the forums, so sorry for my lack of details. I am trying to create a miniature home network that has the ability to be accessed outside the home network. I am going to be creating some database servers that I want to be able to read and write to / check on while I am away from. I have made a test ubuntu cluster inside my main node. The issue I am having is, how do I SSH into my ubuntu node when it shares the same public IP as my main node?

Is it possible within PROX to give a cluster a separate port so that way when I am connecting to it in SSH I can do like, root@ -2020 or something.

it is not possible to change the ssh port of PVE cluster communication.
Why do you not change the ssh port of the guest node?
