[Ntop] using ntop to see flows report

I'm new to ntop (for about 20 hours so far). But I know my way around compiling/unixOS/networking very well.
I can't quite figure out how to find a report in ntop which shows a historic list of flows. I do have several nifty reports like Summary::Traffic, Summary::Hosts, Summary::NetworkLoad, AllProtocols::Traffic and more. But some of the reports are either missing or empty. In particular, I very much want to see a flows report (that is sort of the reason why I started experimenting with an ipfix probe/collector).
So, it turns out that bothSummary:NetworkFlows and Utils::Datadump::NetworkFlows are empty. Just judging by the name, I think those are the reports I'm interested in.
Note that I have already found my way into Pluggins::RDD::Configure and enabled DataToDump=(flows, subnets, hosts, interfaces).
I'm not sure if I'm chasing the 'right' reports and if so, if I have correct or incorrect config. Please help. For reasons beyond my control, I need a project answer here within a few hours :-(
I can post any config, log upon request.
