ntop

ntop is an extremely nifty network analysis tool that breaks down all traffic that crosses your network interface(s). I created a RedHat 8/9 RPM and stuck it in my apt repository if you wanted to give it a try. Make sure you have the freshrpms repository and my voidmain apt repository in your /etc/apt/sources.list and then:

Code: Select all

$ su -
 (enter root's password)
# apt-get install ntop
At the end of the above install it gives you a couple of instructions:

Code: Select all

# cp /etc/ntop.conf.sample /etc/ntop.conf
if necessary:

Code: Select all

# vim /etc/ntop.conf
Create the admin user and set the password:

Code: Select all

# ntop @/etc/ntop.conf -A
Start ntop:

Code: Select all

# service ntop start
Then open a browser and go to http://yourntophost:3000

Enjoy!
