you obviously misunderstood me. Usually, when I get a bad ftp
login alert in my snort logs, I have a corresponding entry in the
"local" logfiles of my ftp server. I can only recall this
happening once. This time, I cannot find any entries on my ftp
host, but neither do I find any irregularities. Still, it makes
me kind of nervous.

I know about snort's logging options ;o))

Thanks, still.

Cheers, Jan
