Before you guys start dumping on me, I have to do this assignment for school so I'm not anywhere near as proficient as some of you guys at this.

Anyway, I was wondering, when I set up an anonymous FTP server what log files should I check reqularly and where are they located?

If you have setup ftpd in the standard way, then the logging will uses these files.

checkout."as root"

# last | grep ftp "will show you the last people to ftp in"
# cat /var/log/secure "will show the start and exit times of the xinetd process on the ftpd"
# cat /var/log/messages "will show you the session opened and closed.. i.e successful logins"
