Custom welcome-message?


Hi,
How can I create a welcome-message of my own which is seen when logged into my server?

in /etc/sshd.conf there should be a parameter called "banner" or something. Point that at the file you want to use.

Also take a look at /etc/motd

- The contents of /etc/motd are displayed by login(1) after a successful login but just before it executes the login shell.

that line is commented by default in sshd.conf. Remove the comment and try again
