It's already being done. Type "last".

The log for login is in /var/log/auth.log in Ubuntu.

What exactly do you mean by maintained? What logs are you looking for (on what machine, what system, what distro).

Specify please.

log of logins

i am using debian sarge as server. logins on network is facilitated using nfs nis portmap trio. so i want that if someone logins from somewhere in the network it gets logged in some file on the nfs server.

I'm thinking that you are probably looking at a syslog-ng client/server thing here.

Either that or change the path of the log to the mount point desired.
