If want to disable the interface checking you can try with "-i none"
anyway i think it is the problem. Simply looking at your log file i
- **ERROR** pcap_open_live(): 'eth1: That device is not up' is
your interface up? (ifconfig)
- **FATAL_ERROR** Not root, ntop shutting down are
you run ntop with root privileges? (because everytime you run a
program that sniff packets on an interface you have to start it with
root privileges, for example wireshark or tcpdump)
