Probably this means you have to run ntop with root permissions.

This Error only occurs only when running ntop from the dameon. please
see the below output for the Log files. Is there a way to disable
interface checking? NTOP runs well when passed the following syntax
from the command line ntop -1 eth1

different interface using the -i flag

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
can see:
- **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)
