That's fine with me. If users know their actions are logged they may
reconsider twice any illegal activity on my box.

Port:   termlog-1.0.3
Path:   /usr/ports/security/termlog
Info:   Monitor or log multiple system terminals synchronously (real-time)

This utility is monitoring and logging multiple system ttys. I've decided
to use it becaus it looked like this it what I was looking for. But it
