    I would like to receive a notification anytime someone successfully logs in via FTP on a server -- for all FTP accounts... like the notification for SSH logins.

    How do I do this?

    Thanks :)

    :D Bailey

    All the succsesfull FTP logins as well as failures are logged into /var/log/messages.

    Example:
    Aug 29 12:24:44 c5-2 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
    Aug 29 12:24:49 c5-2 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [WARNING] Authentication failed for user [root]
    Aug 29 12:25:12 c5-2 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
    Aug 29 12:25:17 c5-2 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [WARNING] Authentication failed for user [ftptest]
    Aug 29 12:25:27 c5-2 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] Logout.
    Aug 29 12:27:36 c5-2 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] New connection from 127.0.0.1
    Aug 29 12:28:02 c5-2 pure-ftpd: (?@127.0.0.1) [INFO] domain@domain.com is now logged in
    Aug 29 12:28:09 c5-2 pure-ftpd: (domain@domain.com@127.0.0.1) [INFO]
    Logout.

    You should be able to code a script that parses that info and sends you an e-mail via some sort of cron.

    Or you can always read the documentation for the ftp server you are using (prodtpd or pureftpd) and see if they have a mechanism that handles your inquiry aready available.
