How to display Message of The Day (motd) from the command line?
Hi there, I find the MOTD details that come up at SSH login quite handy when dealing with multiple droplets.
I’ve just switched to using Cyberduck as my ssh client on the mac and when I launch a terminal window from it, I don’t get the MOTD.
Is there a way to reinvoke the MOTD script from the cli?
NB: It still comes up if I use the standard ‘ssh email@example.com’ command from a natively launched terminal window, so I assume Cynberduck is either not invoking the MOTD script or ignoring the results at login.
Thanks in advance.
