I recently had a customer ask for a log of all telnet sessions from machine A to machine B.  Unfrotunately I'm not sure how to log this info, but realize that this may become very useful in the future.  Is there a way to log all user logins and each telnet of ftp session a user may initiate to the specifc ip.  I would prefer to do this without third party software if thats possible.  Thanks.
