Command to bring up splash screen

When I SSH to my servers, I don’t always see the splash screen. Is there a command that I can use to bring this up as it is very informative?


Thank you

As long as the file .firemotd-cache exists in a users home directory you can run

cat ~/.firemotd-cache

to show the contentn of the file.
Once you login to the account the file’s content is updated as the login process executes the command

FireMotD --theme Gray

and redirects the output of this command to the cache file.
This is done to reduce the time during login process ( just show the output of the file if it already exists; but it may not up to date ) while you need to wait a bit until all information is collectect running the FireMotD command.
