MAC Address Proxy (Remotes)

Took me while to figure out that a device on my network was a remote control.

I only allow specific MAC addresses on my network, so when an unidentified device kept showing up, I wasn’t sure what was going on.

Turns out, the Roku remote had it’s own MAC address and it was getting on the network through the Roku. Don’t know if that relationship can really be called a “Proxy”, but that’s what it makes me think of.

Anyway, it would be great if Fing had a way of identifying devices that have been added to the network by a parent device. Maybe that’s something Fing already does and I just lack the vocabulary to look it up; if so, maybe the app could be a little more helpful in drawing a link between dependent devices?
