Ok this is really weird.
If I start ntop by hand : /usr/local/bin/ntop -u ntop -i eth1 things work
great and it collects data just fine
If I start ntop like this: /usr/local/bin/ntop -u ntop -i eth1
@/etc/ntop.conf it collects no data. I whittled the conf file down to
# grep -v '#' /etc/ntop.conf
What's wrong with that? It makes no sense to me at all.

Subject: [Ntop] Ntop not collecting data
I have a really strange issue.
Running ntop 3.1 on Fedora Core2. I just ran through a quick install
(./configure, make, make install) with no problems but when I start up ntop,
it's not seeing any data whatsoever. I've double checked that there's
actually data flowing to that interface (SPAN port on a cisco 2950, ran
tcpdump and see plenty of packets flying around). Ntop reports that it puts
the correct interface into promiscuous mode (eth1 in this case) started up
with correct user, all the pertinent directories are owned by this user, but
I still get no data.
I tried throwing it into debug mode (-K) but it doesn't look like it's
dumping any more data to syslog
I'm stumped. Any suggestions?
