Changing the pre-login greeting

Changing the pre-login greeting

Post by Nigel Web » Sun, 27 Jul 1997 04:00:00



Is there a way in which I can change the pre-login message for users
telnet-ing into my FreeBSD 2.2.2 systems? I want to remove the automatic
announcement of OS name and version and replace it with an appropriate
warning. /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net do not appear to be implemented.

Regards

I think that you are talking about the /etc/motd file. (?)

Check out /etc/motd
(message of the day)

What's so dangerous in FreeBSD that you have to warn before it?
;-)

Quote:> /etc/issue and /etc/issue.net do not appear to be implemented.

have a look at /etc/gettytab :
/etc#more gettytab                        
[...]
default:\
        :cb:ce:ck:lc:fd#1000:im=\r\n\FreeBSD (%h) (%t)\r\n\r\n:sp#1200:

                                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Hm, there's also something similar in /usr/src/libexec/telnetd/ext.h ,
but that seems to be for special cases.

Bye, Philipp

Go check /etc/gettytab. See the default entry.

One thing nobody has mentioned yet is that tcp_wrappers can display a
banner before Telnet and FTP sessions.
