How to Insert Newline Into 3com RAS 1500 Message?

I'm setting up a 3com RAS 1500 remore access server and need to
configure a custom initial welcome message and login prompt. There
are special codes like $date, $hostname, $port, etc., for inserting
those values into the message text, but I can't find any mention of
how to insert a newline, even one at the end of the message. The
result is that the welcome message and prompt all run together.

The factory default message does include a newline at the end, so it
is obviously possible for the system to have one stored as part of the
field, but I can't figure out how to get it in there.

Anyone know the secret? Seems like you'd always want to do this, and
surely I can't be the first person ever to set custom welcome messages
and prompts. FAQ [ Nyx Net, free ISP ] Misc.Fitness.Weights page [ ]
