Meraki and Fon ssh motd

Apart that officially Fon deny shell access , this is the difference between welcome message on shell login prompt.

Fonera Firmware (Version 0.7.1 rev 1) ————-


Apart the disturbing ( to me of course ) disclaimer of presence of copyrighted software and lawyers action against redistribution , the meraki MOTD is encouraging hacking !

As I wrote in a post some time ago , Fon should react quickly because Meraki is developing very fast . Take a look at the San Francisco mesh project launched last Monday 5 March 2007.

To those whom may concern.
