Remote connections

Is probably an easy to answer question
suppose somebody connect to my computer via ftp (21)
he logs on with a user i have created
however, when I type "who" the user doesnt appear logged.
so, how can I keep an eye on computers conected to my computer?
hope i have been clear, english is not my native language :P

Try "lastlog" on the command line. This will print the username, port, and time that people logged into your computer. For more info: "man lastlog". The log itself is at /var/log/lastlog on my system. May be different on yours.

I think that "who" isn't working for you because logging in by FTP is not the same as SSH in and starting a bash session or whatever.

the command is "w" to see the users logged in and from where.
