I get nothing. However, changing machines I do get the
banner... So it seems there's a problem between these machines.
I switched to a few other pairs of machines running without root and
everything works, after I change the default to not use chroot.
Maybe there's some problem with running as root. Anyway running as
a normal user is enough for me now, so I won't investigate further.
Thanks for paying attention.
