Unknown traffic reported as FTP

Bug Description

The version of ntop provided with Ubuntu reports certain unknown traffic as "FTP", which is not very useful and renders the statistics it generates for my server (which has no FTP traffic, yet the bulk of the traffic is reported as "FTP" by ntop) pretty much useless.

According to this post this is a known problem which is fixed in the latest release:


In addition, when you open the web interface of the version of ntop provided with Ubuntu, it says "Version: a minimally supported but OLDER version - please upgrade" at the bottom of the page.

Could the version of ntop included with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS please be upgraded to the latest version (5.0.1)?
