Pause Internet Success Indicator

The pause Internet feature is great but some devices don’t refresh their ARP cache and still communicate with the real gateway rather than the Fingbox even when “paused”.

I have some IP cameras etc that don’t play with the pause feature very well. I don’t know if there is anyway for the Fingbox to tell if it’s attempt at ARP poisoning has worked or not but it appears that the Fing UI is just reporting that it sent the ARP poisonings message, not that it was successful.

If it is possible for Fingbox to detect that a paused internet device is still communicating with the gateway, could this be highlighted in the FingApp UI in a future update?
