Telnet and ssh login message
 
I am running redhat 9. I have telnet and ssh working correctly.

I was wondering what file I would modify to insert a message to display a greeting when someone logs in.

I have looked on Google and I cant seem to find anything.

Thanks in advance!

Usually /etc/motd will display when using ssh or telnet. Or the issue file in the same directory.

I run Slackware 9.1. It seems that on every reboot, /etc/motd is re-written to it's original state ... how do I prevent that?

wenberg in slackware9.1, edit the file /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Find and unhash this section

#Banner /some/path

So all you need to do is create you banner msg and put the path/file name into sshd_config

Thanks. That seemed to work. But what I was thinking was something text that appeared after login like an motd. Enabling banner seemed to show up on F-Secure SSH client, but not on putty, the client that most of my friends use.

Hmm it should work no matter what, not sure why it aint...??

It works great actually ... but the banner shows up before the login prompt ... and not after.
