Using Ntop on CentOS 4

ntop is a network traffic tool that shows network usage in a real time. One of the good things about this tool is that you can use a web browser to manage and navigate through ntop traffic information to better understand network status.

Ntop monitors and reports hosts traffic and supports these protocols:

  • TCP/UDP/ICMP
  • (R)ARP
  • IPX
  • DLC
  • Decnet
  • AppleTalk
  • Netbios
  • TCP/UDP

In this tutorial we’ll install ntop 3.2 in CentOS 4.
