    How are they accessing the machine? ssh? http/s? ftp?

    iptables/netfilter comes complete with logging capabilities. Many daemons also have logging facilities.

    So, what Linux distro is this? Is apache the webserver?

    For example: under CentOS, using the config/logging defaults will provide the information you're looking for in /var/log/httpd/access_log.
