We are in a secure environment and I am  pretty sure it is doing remote loging.  I need to find the files for a report.  Can anybody help me understand remote logging in solaris 8 ?  what files point to the remote loging server.  How do I find which log is for my server ?

Not quit sure what did you ask, log files usualy under /var/adm and /var/log. There is a loginlog file which records failed login attempts. By default this file does not exist, so no logging is done. Look "man loginlog" for how to enable it.
