Help me on this please...

I set up a customised /etc/issue, which is put to screen nicely
when logging in locally, but on telnet connections, only blank lines
are shown...the number of lines is the same as my /etc/issue actually has,
but no characters are printed.

I am using in.telnetd with kernel 1.3.26...if that matters...

: cp issue issue.net

Wouldn't it be better to make /etc/issue.net a symlink to /etc/issue?  That
way you'd only have to change one file.

If I remember correctly you need to modify the /etc/issue.net file if you
want people to recv a message when telneting in.

Interesting.  I have a file called /etc/issue.net which is used with all
my telnet logins...  Perhaps this is missing?

if you have any control charachters in issue, such as those that display
the date or tty port, they do not work in issue.net, or at least i cannot
figure out how to make them work.  it's probably better to have a
separate copy.

Look at /etc/issue.net for remote connections...

'man issue.net' reports that the following sequences are expanded in issue.net
(only):
       %t     - show the current tty
       %h     - show the system node name (FQDN)
       %D     - show the name of the NIS domain
       %d     - show the current time and date
       %s     - show the name of the operating system
       %m     - show the machine (hardware) type
       %r     - show the operating system release
       %v     - show the operating system version
       %%     - display a single '%' character

use /etc/issue.net for remote logins

-->
cd /etc
ln -si issue issue.net

Check if exist, the /etc/issue.net file. This file is sent whenever a incoming telnet coming in.

Or, if you want, make a symbolic link from /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net.
