Just to add, the --remote-schema option could be avoided if you add a
Host definition to ~/.ssh/config with the appropriate port setting,

  Host foo.example.com
  Port 1234

Then you can just use that hostname, and it should Just Work, with no
need to mess with --remote-schema, or with the -p option when using ssh
