I have wu ftpd install on a solaris system 2.5

I've modified the /etc/inetd.conf file with the following:
-----
ftp  stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/sbin/tcpd in.ftpd -lll
-----

Now, my question is : where are the log's of ftp logins and transfers of files taken place...  

if they are in the
/var/log/wtmp or /var/log/wtmpx files , how do I view the entires properly.

The 'last' command doesn't give me enough information.

My aim is to get a log entiry of user, time and what particular files were download or uploaded that session.

Is there a ftp.log somewhere, or how can I create it?

THankx.

if wu ftp is using syslogd for logging then you may have
to configure /etc/syslog.conf. In syslog.conf you can
specify the log file name.

Hi,

   All ftp transfers are logged in the default xferlog file. It
should be in /var/adm/xferlog or try to do a "find / -name xferlog -print", tcpd also logs login/logout connections, however, it does not log all the files transfered.

   One last way is to recompile your wu-ftpd and set in the config.h whatever directory & file you want the logs go to.
   By the way ... in your inetd.conf ... ftpd -l is enough,
you don't need the ttwo extra "ll"
