How to change cuteftp welcome message?


Jun 28, 2003
I have searched everywhere to try and find how to change the welcome banner for cute-ftp and have had no luck. the documents say to place a .banner file in the users "ftp" directory or root directory. I have had no luck with that. I have placed a .banner file all over the place seeing if I could get it to work.

I have tried starting pure-ftp with the -F option. No luck there either.

The message is compiled inside pure-ftpd. I can pico it and read the message but cannot change it.

Anyone changed the banner successfully?
