Secure Shell and login banner

We implemented secure shell on our remote routers, and now the login banner does not appear. Is this a characteristic of SSH or do we need to configure another kind of banner?

Re: Secure Shell and login banner

There's nothing within the SSH protocol that allows for login banners (banners displayed before the username prompt). You can use a motd banner in the router and that will be displayed AFTER the login process completes successfully.

Basically it's a protocol issue, SSH can't display a banner before the username prompt.
