GUI for active connections

Hi Everyone,
I have an IPTables firewall running, and I wanted to find out if there was any pretty gui, preferably web-based that shows current active connections. Anyone know of anything like that?

What about this:

$connections=`netstat -an`;

print "content-type:text/html\n\n<PRE>$connections</PRE>";

the command ntop gives you a lot of information about your connection. Probably more than you would like. You will probably have to install ntop.

Good ideas, I was envisioning something more like you would see with one of the views in "sniffer pro" where it has this scope-looking thing where it draws lines between connections of hosts. I was thinking of something that is similar to that. Maybe I should just write it myself. Some searching around on the net has revealed not much of anything like that.
