- Another global command…included with the Cisco IOS…is a banner command.…This allows you to configure a message…that anyone logging onto the router…through the console port will see.…A login banner, known as a message…of the day or MOTD banner,…should always be configured…to warn anyone accessing the router…that unauthorized access will not be tolerated.…The banner MOT command requires…the use of a start and end character,…we call these delimiters,…to identify the content of the banner message.…
These characters can be any character,…for example pound sign, question mark,…as long as the character does not occur…within the body of the actual message.…Let me demonstrate how to do this.…The command is banner MOTD,…for message of the day,…and then a pound sign for my delimiter,…unauthorized access,…and then again our ending character or delimiter.…
Hit enter when you're done with the command line,…exit, exit, and you can see…that our message that we have just configured…is displayed prior to entering…the privileged mode of the router.…
