Whare are logs for ftp, telnet and other netwrk connections ?

My question is in the subject.

I need to know where I can watch some logs about network application, likes telnet, ftp and inetd .

Assuming your system is configured relatively normally, you will find them in /var/log. For the most part this is setup in /etc/syslog.conf, though some programs have their own configuration programs. That is the best I can do for such a general question. Is there anything in particular that you have looked for and cannot find?

about telnet : just remember that telnet people have to login.
So, simply type "last" or "last -10" or "last |more" on an AIX system, and you will see the people currently logged, people just logged off, last boot time, etc... People arriving through Ethernet have the terminals /dev/pts/something.

FTP does not log every action by default, only each connection. To log actions, include the -l flag in /etc/inetd.conf.

I asked this because I'had some problems to connect on my server.
Sometimes, we can connect to ftp & telnet, sometimes not ...

Very strange situation ..

Stephane, have a look at /tmp. Loot if it does not happen to be full.
