Re: Pix motd Banner

You mean if you SSH to the PIX itself you don't see the banner?

and you have

no banner motd

Re: Pix motd Banner

Hi,

Using banner motd should be very straight forward, but do not put your '*' right after the 'motd'. You have to have space in between.

*use 'shown banner' to view it.

I have similar config, and it appears everytime I logged in via ssh.

aaa authentication ssh console LOCAL (or point to ACS-TACACS+...)

ssh outside

Re: Pix motd Banner

Alternatively, use PDM to create it:

Configuration - System Properties - Administration - Banner

I assumed your ACS-TACACS+ is working properly and authenticates your successfully. Otherwise, test your ssh via local database, and see if your banner appear.
