My version of Ubuntu is:

Description: Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS Release: 12.04 Codename: precise

I am try to setup my ssh server in order to display some warning message in the Banner. I followed the guide found here by the followings:

Allowing the Banner option in /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Banner /etc/issue.net

and also

service ssh restart

Then I tried to verify by duplicating my ssh session but my server gave me Motd as always. Any idea? I thought it might be related to chmod yet after setting it to 777 still not working.

root@casalab-Latitude-D530:/# ls /etc/issue.net -alt -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 1513 4月 30 08:36 /etc/issue.net root@casalab-Latitude-D530:/#

Thanks a lot.



The files you need to edit live in /etc/update-motd.d. See the update-motd man page for details about how it works.
