NAME

  issue.net - Network issue identification file

DESCRIPTION

  The /etc/issue.net file is a freely formatted	ASCII file.  If	present, the
  telnetd daemon reads this file and writes its	contents over a	new telnet
  connection prior to starting the login dialog.

  Use this file	to store messages that are longer than the message field for
  entries in the /etc/gettydefs	file.

				     Note
       You must	be aware of the	size limits of all potential output devices
       as you create /etc/issue.net messages.  Some devices (for example,
       small screens) might not	hold the messages you enter into the file and
       will truncate the messages.

FILES

  /etc/issue.net
