VCS Log-in Banner (motd)


Recommended Posts

I was messing around with terminal colors the other day and decided to see if I could make a VCS logo to use as a login banner.


I think it turned out alright so I decided to share it in case anyone else finds it useful.   This should work with any Linux installed in PC mode,  (maybe even MacOS).   just unzip the attached file and copy the motd file to /etc.   (if you have an existing /etc/motd, you may want to back it up first


sudo cp motd /etc/motd


motd = "message of the day", the contents of that file will be shown to a user when the login.


If installed correctly, you should see a banner like this when you login via ssh
