CentOS/RedHat Stable Builds

This directory contains installation instructions for nightly builds of 64 bit binary packages for RedHat/CentOS (latest OS version). Please use rpm-stable.ntop.org for stable builds.

Adding the ntop Packages Repository

In order to add the official ntop package repository do (as root):

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/ wget http://packages.ntop.org/centos-stable/ntop.repo -O ntop.repo

Then, perform the following steps, depending on your distribution.

CentOS/RedHat 8

Open your shell and type:

rpm -ivh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-8.noarch.rpm rpm -ivh http://rpms.remirepo.net/enterprise/remi-release-8.rpm yum install dnf-plugins-core dnf config-manager --set-enabled PowerTools dnf config-manager --set-enabled remi

CentOS/RedHat 7

Open your shell and type:

rpm -ivh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm

CentOS/RedHat 6

Open your shell and type:

rpm -ivh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm wget https://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/saltstack/zeromq4/repo/epel-6/saltstack-zeromq4-epel-6.repo rpm -ivh http://packages.ntop.org/rpm6/extra/hiredis-0.10.1-3.el6.x86_64.rpm http://packages.ntop.org/rpm6/extra/hiredis-devel-0.10.1-3.el6.x86_64.rpm

Installing ntop Packages

Now that the ntop packages repository has been added, packages can be installed as:

yum erase zeromq3 (Do this once to make sure zeromq3 is not installed) yum clean all yum update yum install pfring-dkms n2disk nprobe ntopng cento


PF_RING is now packaged without ZC drivers so you can optionally install them:

yum install pfring-drivers-zc-dkms

Notes

Most software work without licenses. However some components do need a license. They include:

  • PF_RING ZC user-space libraries
  • nProbe (NetFlow/IPFIX probe)
  • n2disk (packet to disk application)

If you are a nProbe user and want to install a nprobe package with no dependency, please install the nprobes (rather than the nprobe) package. Note that you can either install the nprobe or the nprobes package but NOT both simultaneously.

You can find more info on the ntop site, or acquire licenses on the ntop e-shop.
