Description

This command specifies the message that is displayed to all incoming reverse telnet connections (instead of the exec banner). If you want to disable the message, delete the banner with the no form of this command. The delimiter marks the beginning and the end of the message; it may be any character that isn’t used in the message.

Example

Here’s how to set a banner:

Router(config)#banner incoming # Welcome to Pyramid #

You can also do multiple lines:

Router(config)#banner incoming #
Enter TEXT message.  End with the character '#'.
Welcome to Pyramid
   Enjoy your stay
#

To disable the message, delete it with the following command:

Router(config)#no banner incoming
