RE: FTP logging issue



fixed

No I haven't, and really don't know how - yet. I'll start trolling the
archives.

Or if someone wanted to give me some instructions on how to do that, I would
really appreciate it.

You try debugging with a "service entry point" yet?

Logging is in place.

My home-grown FTP exit program(s) record who logged in, from where, when,
and the commands done. I have a db setup wherein I've defined each FTP
user, where they can log in from, the acceptable FTP commands (MD, CD,
GET,
PUT, etc) , and their library (or IFS folder, if that's what they need),
and
a list of SYS commands that they issue (if we need to restrict them to
that
level). If they try to issue an invalid command, a log entry is noted.
Shoot, everything is logged; as soon as the FTP exit program is activated
(right after the first '/free' statement), the very first thing that is
done
is a log entry is made, before any checking is done ("FTP EXIT Program
running')

Logins are handled just fin, library/folder restrictions are being handled
no problem, SYS restrictions work. GETs are working and are recorded,
PUTs
are working and are recorded. But the GET/PUT failures aren't being
logged;
the 'FTP EXIT Program running' entry isn't even being recorded (indicating
that the exit program isn't even being called - right?). I've got to be
missing something, but I don't know what.

So... I figured my home-grown stuff is fouling up somewhere. To prove
that,
I downloaded, installed and set up SECTCP from Easy400.net. It's *DOING
THE
SAME THING*. Successes are recorded, failures are not.

Am I missing something somewhere?

So is all your logging that your getting then just host generated commands
that you get(puts, gets).

I've got an FTP exit program in place to control logins, and to record
the various commands processed by the FTP server on the iSeries:

Exit point: QIBM_QTMF_SERVER_REQ Format: VLRQ0100
Program: #FTPLOGON4

The program logs "gets" gets (among commands). Well, mostly. it
records the SUCCESSFUL gets. If a PC user (for example) issues a get
on a non-existent file, nothing is recorded. All of the successful
gets are recorded just fine.

Is there something in the program I should look at to enable logging
of the unsuccessful commands?
