Banner MOTD

IHAC who is running 3.2.2c in his enviorment. 4 MDS Switches.

If we Set the Banner Motd on the switch it works fine for Telnet . But not SSH putty or SecureCRT?

In my Lab i can get it to work fine? on Both Telnet and SSH . His putty is set to all defaults . I compared his to mine. We tried Configuring it on another of his switches. Still no luck ?

Anyone run into this ?

Re: Banner MOTD

Never heard of that scenario before. Is the customer using SSH with password for login? I mean it should work the same if they are using pre-shared keys, but that might be something different between your testing and their environment. If they are using password, perhaps they can collect a Wiresharke trace, and you can collect on from your lab for comparison.

Hope this helps,

Re: Banner MOTD

Thanks for the response Mike. the issue was resolved. Customer Was using SSH1 which does not allow Security Banner. Only SSHv2 allows it
