Get mail notification on SSH logins


Hello all,

i found a small script which you can include in the .bashrc file and you get notified via email when root logins to a machine.

http://www.crucialp.com/resources/tu...gin-e-mail.php

Is there any centralized way to have such a script as the one above so that i can get notified when any of the users login to a machine? not just root?

Thanks.

I haven't checked, but putting it in /etc/bashrc should work if the users' ~/.bashrc file sources /etc/bashrc. Keep in mind that users can modify their ~/.bashrc so that it doesn't source the global file.
