How to get here

This page displays and allows you to modify the Welcome and Exit messages.

Note: Welcome and Exit messages are only used by FTP listeners. SSH listeners ignore these settings.

For both of these messages, you can use message variables to provide statistics within the body of the message (for example, the number of files received and sent by the user).

Note: You can also set a banner message (the message you want the server to send to a user upon successful connection, before the user logs on), on the Listener Details: General Settings page.

Note: These settings are cached by WS_FTP Server for up to ninety seconds. Changes made to these settings are not recognized until the services are restarted or the cache expires.
