Hi,

I'm trying to remediate an issue that came up on a Nessus scan that has to do with the FTP banner. The "Microsoft FTP Service" is already suppressed, so that now it only shows 220 for it's banner. However, the scanner still flags this.

Is there a way to suppress the 220, so that nothing is returned? The checkbox to suppress the default banner is already checked...now I need to find a way to suppress the "220". Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I doubt that you can do that.  The banner is just an add-on, the basic 220 code means "Service ready for new user."  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_FTP_server_return_codes

My apologies for the delay.

Thank you for the assistance - you were correct, the status code cannot be suppressed.
