Disable /etc/issue.net


Hi all..

Is there any way to disable displaying the contents of /etc/issue.net when login through telnet...

I have tried making the file /etc/issue.net empty but i get a blank line after Escape character is '^]'.
Code:
[vinay@localhost webhuddle]$ telnet 172.21.109.60
Trying 172.21.109.60...
Connected to 172.21.109.60.
Escape character is '^]'.

Try renaming it to something else and see if it works.
Quote:
mv /etc/issue.net /etc/issue.net.bak
