• Hi,

    Just tried installing package Traffic Totals. And when it's done, it pops up a message which instructs me to "add my default network interface" in the sample configuration file...

    Problably a stupid question, but anyone care to tell me what my default network interface is (i.g. lan, wan)? And if the change is to be made in the "sample file" or another config file which does not end with sample.

    Thank you so much for the replies...


    Thank you both for clarifying this so quick. Much appreciated.

  • The file exists, as mentioned during installing /usr/local/etc/vnstat.conf ( a /usr/local/etc/vnstat.conf.sample exists also ).

    There is no need to edit this (a) file manually - the GUI will handle everything for you.

    As @Gertjan writes, the GUI will cover that. The messages you saw were from the package installation (on shell level) and are triggered by the package maintainer of vnstat to remind the user after installation that one has to setup the package accordingly. You have the GUI for that :)
