Hello,
I'm configuring a 2811 router for a 56k frame-relay private network. One of the security requirements is to have a banner with a warning message during telnet session. Any help on how to do this would be most appreciated.
thanks.

If you mean a MOTD:

router#config t

router(config)#banner motd #Authorized Access Only!#

This example is perhaps more clear: (props to http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/83/add-a-login-banner-to-your-cisco-router/)

The first character after motd sets the beginning and ending character. So if you choose the octothorpe (or hash mark) you'd end with it.

config t
banner motd #
