Thank you all very much for the responses. I apologize for the delay in the

-The majority of the recommendiations pointed me to the wuarchive version of ftpd.
It is located on in directory /packages/wu-ftpd. It was
also recommended that I pickup log_tcp-5.1.

-Another manager recommended tcp_wrappers program from the Eindhoven University
Technology in The Netherlands.

-Yet another said:

These are 4 versions that have enhanced logging or can be modified
        to enable logging: ( /packages/ftpd.wuarchive.shar ( /pub/ftpd.tar.Z ( /pub/4.3/ftpd-sirius.tar.Z ( /pub/src/widener/ftpd-wid.tar.Z

- Another recommendation was to modify the existing Sun configuration

The stock Sun ftpd will log some information if you add the "-l"
        flag in /etc/inetd.conf:

        ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/etc/in.ftpd in.ftpd -l

        Also enable syslogd by adding: /var/adm/syslog

        to "/etc/syslog.conf".
- I could have also extracted the information from the FAQ (sorry for not
  looking there in the first place)

 In summary, I have decided to go with the wuarchive.
