This will only work if everyone runs the same kind of terminal. Try putting
this
at the top of the file :

echo `clear` (These are back ticks)

This should be terminal independent.

:  Do you know how I could put the date and time into the /etc/issue.net?

This is dependent on the in.telnetd you have, some work with issue.net,
some don't.

Here's my issue.net

Welcome to %h
It is currently %d

1. /etc/issue.net and /etc/motd

Folks~~
Here's my situation.
I change /etc/issue.net and /etc/motd so that remote users can get those
messages when logging in.
But whenever I reboot my system, it changes to the original.
"Welcome to Linux 1.0." & "Linux 1.0. (Posix)."
"chmod" to read-only doesn't work.

Am I missing something?
Help me~~~

2. IP MASQ and netstat

3. Clear screen in /etc/issue?

4. bug in 3.2 sdiff ?

5. /etc/issue & /etc/motd

6. Netscape Won't Work

7. Solaris CD images successfully burned

8. RedHat and /etc/issue.net

9. /etc/issue.net

10. /etc/issue.net resolved ...
