Alchemy 1.0 rflow setup questions...

    Greetings. I've just installed Alchemy 1.0 final on my WRT54G, and I'm most happy with it. The QoS setup RULES, in particular...

    I noticed the not-well-documented(?) option to use ntop for traffic monitoring. After some playing around with ntop, I wasn't able to get it to work.

    I think the problem lies in the parameters I'm using to start rflow on the '54G.

    The machine running ntop's got an IP of 192.168.0.8, and has been configured to listen on port 9996. Therefore, I run this on the router:
    rflow -A 60 -I 300 -i vlan1 -F 192.168.0.8:9996

    However, after some time, sending a ctrl+c to get rflow to show its stats reveals that it's seeing no traffic, and ntop's indicating the same.

    Do I have it listening on the proper interface? I want it to watch the traffic on the WAN interface, preferably outside the firewall. Is vlan1 correct for that, or should I use ppp0?

    Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated... I haven't been able to find ANY particularly good documentation on rflow yet! (Am I searching the right places, though?)

    I am also having real trouble getting rflow to run with ntop on Alchemy 1.0 firmware. Some pointers from the experts would be much appreciated :)
