Several Files Which are Seen By Different Kinds of Logins

Based on your question, you probably want to edit
/etc/issue. For telnet logins, use issue.net. /etc/issue is displayed before login. /etc/motd is displayed after login.

Login Type

A lot of this display depends on the login type. If am assuming you are talking about text logins, and sshd won't display one of these files. I cannot remember which ones won't display on sshd
