connection tracing

I hope the following will answer your request

1-In any multi root login environment there should be root naming policy as long as they are having the same user Id (0) for root. If I have latif, John and Sam with root previlages then I should creat users as following:

1-root-ltf:!:0:0:system Administrator:/home/latif:/usr/bin/ksh

2-root-sam:!:0:0:system Administrator:/home/sam:/usr/bin/ksh

3-root-jhn:!:0:0:system Administrator:/home/john:/usr/bin/ksh

After then you can trace easily who is loging as root......

All the best latif

If you are administrator, I suggest that you use the host.equiv and .rhost files to limit who has access to the server. Then if they need access they will have to come to you to gain access

You will then know who has access to the server.
