Thanks for that, follow up question though.

I'm using busybox as this is a device, therefore ash instead of bash

so my line in screenrc is......

screen -t  logon 0 ash --login

which does work and shows the banner but also throws up a message...

Attaching from inside of screen?

I call a script from inside of /etc/profile that checks to see if
screen is started and if it isn't starts it before allowing the ssh
connection, my guess is that this is creating a one time loop?

I'll look at changing the profile script to see if screen is active
before deciding which bits to run there and see if that fixes the
problem, thanks for your help.
