Table of Contents

Install Docker

To use this image you have to install Docker first.


You can get the trusted build from the Docker Hub registry:

Alternatively, you may build the Docker image from the
source code on GitHub.

How to use this image

Environment variables

You can use two environment variables that will be recognized by the start script.


The first argument indicates that the NTOPNG should monitor the FRITZ box.


The second argument indicates what interface at the FRITZ box should be monitored.


The third argument is the password for the FRITZ box.


If this environment variable is set, the scripts inside the container will run in debug mode.

Start the NTOPNG instance

The instance can be started by the start script
from GitHub:

chmod 755

If you want to monitor your FRITZ box you have to add the following paramter to the start script:

chmod 755
./ "true" "lan" "secret"

Check server status

You can use the standard Docker commands to examine the status of the NTOPNG instance:

docker logs --tail 1000 --follow --timestamps ntopng

Next steps

The next release of this Docker image should have a persistent NTOPNG configuration.

Important notes

The username for the web server is root/password unless you don't change the password with the environment
variable as described in the Environment variables
