Login banner—Appears only when password or scheme authentication has been configured.
Incoming banner—Appears for Modem users.

Banner message input modes
You can configure a banner in one of the following ways:
Input the entire banner in the same line as the command. The start and end delimiters for the
banner must be the same but can be any visible character. The input text, including the command
keywords and the delimiters cannot exceed 510 characters. In this mode, do not press Enter
before you input the end delimiter. For example, you can configure the shell banner "Have a nice
day." as follows:
[System] header shell %Have a nice day.%
Input message text in multiple lines. In this approach, the message text can be up to 2000
characters. Use one of the following methods to implement multi-line input mode:
Method 1—Press Enter after the last command keyword. At the system prompt, enter the
banner message and end with the delimiter character %. For example, you can configure the
banner "Have a nice day. Please input the password." as follows:
[System] header shell
Please input banner content, and quit with the character '%'.――System prompt
Have a nice day.
Please input the password.%
Method 2—After you type the last command keyword, type any character as the start delimiter
for the banner message and press Enter. At the system prompt, type the banner message and
end the last line with a delimiter that is the same as the start delimiter. For example, you can
configure the banner "Have a nice day. Please input the password." as follows:
[System] header shell A
Please input banner content, and quit with the character 'A'.――System prompt
Enabled by default.
