       eft_xferlog - EFT server logfile


       The  eft_xferlog  file contains logging information from the eftp4linux
       eurofile server  daemon,  eftd(8).   This  file  usually  is  found  in
       /var/adm, but can be located anywhere by using a option to eftd(8).

       eftd uses the same format as wu-ftpd for its log files. Thus, you might
       be able to use or adapt tools that have been written to analyse wu-ftpd
       xferlog  files.  However,  for  some  fields  of the log file different
       semantics apply. This is because they  are  now  related  to  the  isdn
       domain rather than the internet.

       Each  server  entry is composed of a single line of the following form,
       with all fields being separated by spaces.

              current-time     transfer-time      remote-host      file-size
              filename     transfer-type    special-action-flag    direction
              access-mode   username   service-name    authentication-method

       current-time        is  the  current local time in the form "DDD MMM dd
                           hh:mm:ss YYYY". Where DDD is the day of  the  week,
                           MMM is the month, dd is the day of the month, hh is
                           the hour, mm is the minutes, ss is the seconds, and
                           YYYY is the year.

       transfer-time       is the total time in seconds for the transfer.

       remote-host         is the remote host’s isdn number.

       file-size           is the size of the transferred file in bytes.

       filename            is the name of the transferred file.

       transfer-type       is  a  single  character  indicating  the  type  of
                           transfer. Can be one of:
                                  a         for an ascii transfer
                                  b         for a binary transfer
       As eftp4linux only supports binary transfers, this will allways be ’b’.

       special-action-flag is  one  or  more single character flags indicating
                           any special action taken.  Can be one or more of:
                                  C         file was compressed
                                  U         file was uncompressed
                                  T         file was tar’ed
                                  _         no action was taken
       As on-the-fly-compression is not supported  by  eftp4linux,  this  will
       always be ’_’.

       direction           is the direction of the transfer. Can be one of:
                                  o         outgoing
                                  i         incoming

       access-mode         is  the  method by which the user is logged in. Can
                           be one of:
                                  a         (anonymous) is  for  an  anonymous
                                            guest user.
                                  g         (guest) is for an passworded guest
                                            user (see the  guestgroup  command
                                            in eftaccess(5) ).
                                  r         (real)     is    for    a    local
                                            authenticated user.

       username            is the local username, or if guest, the  ID  string

       service-name        is  the name of the service being invoked, which is

                           is the method of authentication used.  Can  be  one
                                  0         none
                                  1         RFC931 Authentication
       As RFC931 authentication is not used by eftp4linux, this will always be

                           is the  user  id  returned  by  the  authentication
                           method.  A * is used if an authenticated user id is
                           not available. With eftp4linux, this  will  be  the
                           same as the user name.
