vsftpd success or failure log entries

Dear Experts:

Iam having RHEL5 working as a production server the real users access this server through the internet problem is iam not able to see the log entries like success or failures in the /var/log/vsftpd.log , the log only shows the user doing the upload and download.  The success or failure logins are not found even in the /var/log/messags or /var/log/secure , in the secure ssh logins success or failure entries are found similarly iam looking for the  success or failure log entries for the vsftpd service  in any of the log file, please suggest me how to do this, thanks in advance.

I researched a bit, try to add  "syslog_enable=YES " in your /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf file .
Then restart your vsftpd service  and syslog service .

it seems that this is needed so you get these messages in /var/log/messages.
