Hi

i need to get ProFTP to log everythink to a log file how can i do this?

at the moment its logging to a system file
/var/log/messages

i want to log 2 any log file, my own woud be best instead of messages or secure. i want to see eveyrhtink file transfers the lot
as i am having problems with someone downloaing of it as it seems to be cutting them off,

and i need ot find out the error message as right now i just have
