Where is the SSH auth.log file?

    Hi!

    I want to check my SSH users who tried to login, to see if someone is trying to enter on my server via brutforce.

    But I can't find the SSH login log. Anybody know its location?

    By the way, I changed the SSH port and make the root login impossible.

    Thanks!

    I believe the file you want is:
    /var/log/secure

    LogWatch generates an email report of this activity as well.

    I don't have the secure directory ;)
    I never had an email about an error with the login from watchdog, even when I did some mistakes :)

    'secure' is the file name, not a directory.
