I gave up on ntop because it seemed to be rather confusing and didn't actually
give me what I wanted, pretty graphs of BW usage.   :D
All the other cable traffic is stopped at your cable modem. The hosts page
includes all the web pages you surf and the ads that are viewed so possibly they
are comming from that.
As I understand it ntop simply listens on the devices and does the lookups on
the IP addresses it doesn't know.
If you're just into simple BW usage graphs for the interfaces mrtg is neat.

| could anyone shed any light on these :) - or is it OK to see this data?

| Thanks
