Need help with PUTTY


I have two terminal emulators. One is PUTTY and the other one is Mocha TN3270.

When I connect to the Shell server running FreeBSD from the TN3270, it comes up as follows:

SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_3.6.1p1 FreeBSD-20030924


But from PUTTY, it does not have that info like above. I used Port:22 for SSH for both clients.

I want PUTTY to connect to this shell, but I want it to have the FreeBSD part show up.

That's a client side problem. If you want to hack PUTTY so it shows the sshd's banner go right ahead. Otherwise you can't do anything.

All that's doing is showing you the SSH service banner, which isn't really meant for humans any way. That is used to identify the version of the daemon being used so the client knows how to talk to it.

If that's so important to you, you could write a small PERL or Expect script to open a connection to port 22 and grab the banner, then exit. Put that in your .bash_login (or whatever script automatically get's executed by your shell at login) and as soon as you login you'll see the banner.

By the way, this is a PuTTY question, not a FreeBSD question.
