An easy way to implement FTP logging:

/etc/inetd.conf

Add "dl" as option to ftp in /etc/inet/inetd.conf

Default config:
ftp      stream      tcp6      nowait      root      /usr/sbin/in.ftpd      in.ftpd -a

Change that to
ftp      stream      tcp6      nowait      root      /usr/sbin/in.ftpd      in.ftpd -ald

Syslog.conf:
daemon.debug            /var/adm/daemon.debug

pkill -HUP syslogd

Regards,

Mark
