tcpd not logging?

Hey;

 

I'm having an issue getting tcp wrappers to log on an ia64, rx2800.  here's what I have:

 

# grep telnetd /etc/inetd.conf
telnet stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/tcpd /usr/lbin/telnetd -b /etc/issue

 

For logging purposes only (don't want to block anything until I know what's being used):

 

# ls -ld /etc/hosts.allow /etc/hosts.deny
-r--r--r-- 1 bin bin 441 Dec 20 10:47 /etc/hosts.allow
-r--r--r-- 1 bin bin 431 Feb 15 2007 /etc/hosts.deny
# grep -v -e ^# -e ^$ /etc/hosts.allow
ALL:ALL
# grep -v -e ^# -e ^$ /etc/hosts.deny

# grep -v -e ^# -e ^$ /etc/tcpd.conf
#

 

I configured auth.info into syslog.conf and that's being seen:

 

# logger -p auth.info "test #3"
# tail /var/adm/syslog/auth.log
[[snip]]

Dec 20 11:06:16 venus root: test #3

 

So, despite all that, when I telnet into the system, I'm not seeing any logging information.  I also remembered that at least one version of tcpd wrote to the mail log for hpux - nothing's showing up there either.  The only thing that's showing up in syslog is the standard telnet messages:

 

# grep -i telnet /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log
Dec 20 10:51:28 venus telnetd[7891]: allowed connection from localhost
Dec 20 11:01:49 venus telnetd[8187]: allowed connection from localhost

 

Can anyone see what I've messed up?  Hopefully, it's something simple that sleep deprivation is making me miss..

 

Thanks.
