You can configure welcome and banner messages to send as part of the response when a client connects to the corresponding server. For FTP, SYST command responses can also be customized.
The welcome message is typically used to identify the server software version and for FTP, you can also optionally use it for the SYST response. You can use a banner message to send a warning or other information to the client as each connection is established.
You can use
%time% macros in both the welcome and banner messages, and the SYST responses. Use the
%time[+/-#h][+/-#m][+/-#s][,MacroTimeFormat=...]% variants of the macros. Otherwise, the default formats of yyyyMMdd (date) and HHmmssSSS (time) will be used. See Using macro variables.
