    Not sure what you mean? You only see the real ip address but you want to trace the main ip?

    any one try ftp through fake ip or private ip but in log file i can see only real ip or public ip so can any one tell me howto trace ip address from where he or she attempt failure logins.

    That is going to be a bit hard. If the person is using a proxy or some sort of fake ip address to connect to your ftp server. the log file will only log that current ip address. If you can find out what his MAC address is then you could try to contact that ISP where the ip address is coming from and tell them the MAC address that was used.

    Good luck!

    /etc/init.d/pure-ftp restart

    And if the process does not want to restart just kill it. killall -9 pure-ftp
    Then start the process again.

    Well you can force a reboot with commands:
    reboot
    shutdown -r now

    To do this remotly without logging in try using a APC remote reboot dongle.

    Every day, people try to hack into my boxes. The same will happen to you. You can't make them stop by contacting their ISP's (wasting your time). However, you can harden your system so they can't get in:
    - Make sure you require your ftp users to use SSL/TLS encrypted logins.
    - Make sure the login name/password are unique and hard to guess.
    - Require passwords use both alpha and numeric characters.
    - Disable remote root login.
    - Configure your firewall to block attacks (drop packets after 3 failed login attempts).

    Don't bother chasing the IP of a hacker. Good ones will use somebody else's box to hack into yours. Most ISP's don't do anything anyways, so a good defense is best.
