Can't Access NTOP



  • Good morning all,

    I have been trying to get NTOP to install and run on a 2.1-RELEASE (amd64) built on Wed Sep 11 18:17:48 EDT 2013 FreeBSD 8.3-RELEASE-p11 on a box with an Intel i7 3740 with 16gB of ram with Intel NICs using em* drivers.

    I am able to install NTOP package without issue and can access the NTOP settings from the Diagnostics page.  I have selected the LAN interface and set a password.  When I click save it takes about 60 seconds for it to complete.

    When I go to access the NTOP page from the Diagnostics menu or to browse to it by the lan ip :3000 I am getting a error in Firefox that says the connection has timed out.

    Looking at NETSTAT -an it looks like it is listening on port 3000 but I am unable to connect.

    $ netstat -an

    udp4      0      0 *.56678                .

    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and have made no progress with this.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.



  • Have you added a firewall rule to allow access to port 3000 ?



  • @rjoffe:

    Have you added a firewall rule to allow access to port 3000 ?

    And you sir are the winner.  I should just bow my head and walk away in shame.

    The rule I added ended up below my deny all on my LAN interface and as soon as I moved it up it is working beautifully.

    Thank you.



  • You are welcome :)
