You can put your own ascii-based-welcome message into:



/etc/; # actually used for pre-login-telnet messages

make shure to uncomment the #Banner line in:

vim /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Banner /etc/

and restart ssh service:

/etc/init.d/ssh restart; # and restart ssh service

relogin and test.

exit; # logoff

you could put a cool ascii generated logo like:

8888b.  Yb        dP    db    Yb    dP 888888 .dP"Y8
 8I  Yb  Yb  db  dP    dPYb    Yb  dP  88__   `Ybo."
 8I  dY   YbdPYbdP    dP__Yb    YbdP   88""   o.`Y8b
8888Y"     YP  YP    dP""""Yb    YP    888888 8bodP'
