Wow...Thanks to ALL who responded so quickly.

35 people told me to use tcp wrappers -- easily downloaded from a
number of sites

2 people told me to check out the -t switch on inetd

1 person told me about /var/adm/loginlog will tracked failed attempts,
and utmp/wtmp will track successfull attempts

1 person told me about setting the auth* variable in /etc/syslog.conf

thank you to all...

I will look at all of the options and chose the best for me.
