PfTop broken in 2.4.3?



  • If started from Diagnostic->pfTop just gives me "Invalid filter, check syntax" output regardless what I put in the filter. If I start it from the shell line I get:

    Error Reading status (DIOCGETSTATUS): Permission denied
    

    Anyone else seeing this?



  • Diagnostics => pfTop : Works fine for me. Although, I advise you to access SSH, go god mode (8) and type pftop.

    Btw :

    Is this on 2.4.3 or 2.4.3-p1?

    Maybe you're running that as a regular user and not as root? It needs root permissions, or at least sudo.

    2.4.3-p1 and I'm running the command as root.

    I'll do a clean install and restore my config to see if my installation is broken somehow.



  • Solved by a clean install. Something must have gotten messed up over numerous upgrades.
