      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.
