README for iftop $Id$ Read the INSTALL file, manual page and source code for more information. iftop must be run as root. KNOWN ISSUES Solaris: On Solaris, iftop has to run in promiscuous mode in order to capture outgoing packets. iftop autoconfigures to run in promiscuous mode on Solaris, but will filter out non-broadcast packets which are not addressed to or from localhost. On Solaris, the -p option merely disables that filter. If you have some other sort of system that behaves like Solaris in needing promiscuous mode, you can pass --enable-default-promiscuous to configure to enable this behavior. Cf. http://www.tcpdump.org/lists/workers/2002/02/msg00010.html The version of curses distributed with Solaris may not be sufficient for iftop's needs. You will probably need ncurses or similar.
