You restarted your server? or is to silly a question?

And i see a item:  DisplayLogin          welcome.msg

Is it possible so that you have to change this file in order to change the login message?

welcome.msg is the file you have to edit.

1) Put welcome.msg is the same directory as the config file
2) and yes, restart the service.
