    Question Connected users - Is there a display in OSX?

    I'm running a simple FTP on my G4 and people are logging in just fine from windows and macs. Is there a display panel where I can see connected users? And, is there a panel where I can see transfer activities such as the files each user user is downloading/uploading/time connected, etc.?

    In OS9 this window was available

    Open /Utilities/Terminal.app.
    Type: last to see the last logged-in users.
    To view the 50 most recent transfer entries in your FTP log:
    tail -50 /private/var/log/ftp.log

    Actually it's in the /var/log folder. One thing you can do is open a separate Terminal window and type...

    tail -f /var/log/ftp.log

    ...then whenever the FTP log file changes the display will update in real-time.

    Thanks slur, that was exactly what I was looking for. It works perfectly with the auto-update.

    You'll have to excuse me because I'm new to the unix commands. Funny thing though, I noticed that an unknown user logged in yesterday, here it is:

    Dec 25 17:21:02 xxxx-xxxxs-Computer ftpd[818]: connection from net3.planetnet.com to xxxxxxxx.net

    But there's no log of any data transfer. I have all the sensitive folders set to my access only but do you think that's something to worry about?
