Great utility!
This is really easy and simple! Very useful! I am really please with how quickly I can start watching network traffic with little more than an apt-get or yum install.

Thanks for the project!

Display problems (perhaps)
[RedHat 7.2 (with all updates + 2.4.17smp kernel)]
[iptraf 2.6.1, just built on the same system it's running on]

1.The TCP connections display seems to link each line with itself instead of linking a pair of lines, and adjacent lines don't seem to be related.

2. Flow rate never gets above 0.0 Kbytes/sec.

3. I can' tell if closed TCP connections are being aged properly and dropped from the display. I seem to end up with more and more connections displayed, and many are marked CLOSED.

A window dump of iptraf on my system is available at

Are these bugs or operator error?

iptraf is at this time the best ip traffic monitoring software i've seen

i recommend it to every system admin. It's light, it's easy, it's accurate.
