    Remote login banner.

      How do I change the remote login banner so I don't broadcast I'm a "NetVanta 3448"?

          There are three possible banners:


          motd  - "Message of the day" (but usually updated far less frequently) - appears at first connection.


          login - appears after motd


          exec - appears after authentication.


          Syntax to change, from global configuration mode:


          banner motd % This is the message of the day. Today is Tuesday. %


          banner login % Unauthorized access is prohibited. Go away.  %


          banner exec % You have successfully logged in. Don't forget to save your changes. %


          Note that the % is a delimiter. It can be any character that isn't part of the message itself. Type it once before the message and once after. If your message contains a % then use something else.


          You can insert returns within the message to make it more readable. For example:


          banner login %




                       Unauthorized access is prohibited. Go away.
