Replacement for ntop



  • Hi,

    well to my grate disappointment when I wanted to analyze some traffic on one of the networks and saw that ntop was gone. I started thinking how could I still get the level of detail.
    Is there any way of outputting data to another pc and running ntop there without having to reroute traffic through any other PCs since I just want to see what's going on on the network I don't wanna change it.

    Thanks for the help.

    Bye



  • If your switch is capable of this: You could mirror the port going to the pfSense to the port of your "loggingmachine".

    If that's not an option.
    Did you read the thread to install ntop manually?

  • Hi,

    no unfortunately the switch isn't capable of this function. But I did read the thread about ntop and tried it but was unsuccessful almost every time.  :(
    I keep getting the same error over and over again about local package cache. I'll have to try and setup another pfsense machine just so that I can try and test until I get it working. I just thought that there was a way to do this without having to hack my way thought it.  :)
    I'll try again and post back in that thread if I still don't have any luck but any advice is still welcome. :)

    Bye
