I am go into a dead loop of install and configure ntop. It tells me ntop: INTERFACES is not defined, please run 'dpkg-reconfigure ntop' on startup, but this command leads to ntop is broken or not fully installed. Is there any way to manually reconfigure ntop?

    Have you tried: sudo apt-get purge ntop; sudo apt-get install ntop; ? – Paul Tanzini Feb 13 '14 at 14:45

Try this:

sudo apt-get purge ntop; sudo apt-get install ntop

Then the follow screen popps:

**Package configuration

┌─────────────────────────┤ Configuring ntop ├─────────────────────────┐
│ Please enter a comma-separated list of interfaces that ntop should │
│ listen on. │
│ │
│ Interfaces for ntop to listen on: │
│ │
│ none________________________________________________________________ │
│ │
│ │
│ │
└───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

You can get the interface name if you click on the Network Manager in your top panel and select Connection Information. Near the top, you'll see something like "Interface: Ethernet (eth0)". If that's the connection you want to monitor, you'll enter "eth0". (Answer copied and pasted from answered Nov 1 at 19:41Jo-Erlend Schinstad)
