At least for ftpd I think there is a solution:
1. Edit /etc/inetd.conf
ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/libexec/ftpd ftpd -ll
ftp stream tcp6 nowait root /usr/libexec/ftpd ftpd -ll
The flags -ll enable extended logging.
2. Edit /etc/syslog.conf:
3. Create the log file
# touch /var/log/ftpd.log
4. Optionally: Edit /etc/newsyslog.conf for preferred log
The IPs are being logged in the log file. I'm sure SSH
allows something similar. If I remember correctly, this
has recently been discussed at this list, maybe the archive
brings up some helping informations for you.
