    vsftpd - need last logged in date/time


    I can't seem to get last logged in dat/time for vsftpd users.

    They are linux users maintained within passwd groups ect ...


    i think this is because ftp doesn't actually give them a real session.

    That being true, how do i get the last logged in time for my ftp users?

    I need to know for account maint and security.

    You can activate vsftp logging in the config file :

    xferlog_enable=YES
    xferlog_file=/data/log/vsftpd.log
    xferlog_std_format=YES


    Then you get a log file with date/time username IP and transfered files. You can parse this to get your information.
