Hello,
I have a FC4 server running VSFTPD.  I can not find where the log files are being kept for unsuccessful log in attempts, or where to set this in any of the vsftpd.conf file.

Add  " syslog_enable=YES " in your /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file .
Then restart your vsftpd service  and syslog service .


Good Luck..!

and check your log files  in /var/log/messages  . It won't log to /var/log/vsftpd.log
