I have a requirement to add comments in /etc/motd file and these comments should not reflect in ssh login banner.. Is it possible to add comments in /etc/motd file ?
Because when ever I comment any line with # it just prints the line along with # as
# comment..... when we login using ssh.
I have a network that at the moment is isolated from the internet. We are going to connect it to an existing adsl line that has a firewall,but we want to add another firewall behind it as we do not have total control over the existing firewall. The only thing we want to allow is smtp access for one computer.
I'm using a dedicated host. Unfortunately, when I use x windows with xming, it tends to freeze up the x windows session. This is keeping me from calling system-config-securitylevel and making changes to the firewall. Is there a way to do it on the command line?
