Ntopng. Unable to start HTTP server (IPv4) on ports 3000s



  • Hello,

    This error appeared in System Logs. I can access ntopng, but I wonder why this error happens.
    Nov 8 07:47:40 ntopng [HTTPserver.cpp:923] ERROR: Unable to start HTTP server (IPv4) on ports 3000s

    It looks like it's trying to start twice (or perhaps failing to close).

    Do you see this just once at boot or repeatedly?

    What pfSense version are you running? What ntopng package version?

  • Pfsense version is 2.4.4 and ntopng version is 0.8.13_2. I see it usually, especially on boot.

    Is ntop actually working correctly? If so it seems like a harmless but ugly error.
    I see that same error here and it doesn't appear to affect function.
