  • ssh won't know anything about the source of the characters, it just transports them. I think you want to create a .hushlogin file to tell the shell not to show you that.

    • Unfortunately I don't have shell access. I'm accessing with SFTP. I guess maybe I can ask the vendor of the box to create the file, though. Thanks!

      • You can't transfer a file over SFTP?
        • I can (although I thought I wouldn't have write access). I tried it; it doesn't work. My original response was addressing the fact that the shell was showing me the motd. It's not the shell showing it; it's the sshd. I'm not accessing a shell at any point, to my knowledge. So I guess that's why .hushlogin doesn't work. But thanks for trying to help. At least I learned something. :)
