I connect with my server via ssh and always it shows the last log: Last login: Sat Mar 19 14:05:17 2016 from... but that login is my actual login. What's the utility of this info? It should print the previous connection.

Gentoo 64 bits
Openssh v7.2

    No. It does print the previous login on all of my machines. What is your system, what is your openssh version on server? – Jakuje Mar 19 '16 at 14:00

I've seen this issue when two types of "Last Login:" response were generated. This is becuase I had pam_lastlog configured as well as the SSH having the default PrintLastLog enabled.
