view access logs telenet


one of my sites i host is doing somewhat well in the search engines, and i would like to watch the raw log files while looged in with telenet
is there a way to do this.

If the logs are ascii text, use the tail command

% tail -f mylog.log

Scrolls what is coming into the log file - control-C to get out. See the man page for tail
