Hi

  Is it possible to have normal people's ftp file transfers to
/var/log/ftpd?



TIA
Paolo

Hi Joel

There is a special case where anonymous ftp transfers are written to
/var/log/ftpd (when using
double 'l' switch) . When writing /var/log/ftpd it uses a different file
format than the one used
when writing to /var/log/xferlog. I'm interested in the information and
not the name of the file



TIA
Paolo
