Devices no longer in the "Device list" getting automatic block alarms
Not sure where to put this post, it is not a problem really but more a question! I have a device "Annies-Ipad" that was connected to my WIFI about 10 days ago (April 8th), it is no longer in the device list but I still get alarms for it, see below, why is that, is it because the name and IP is "cached" somewhere in Firewalla and if/when someone out there tries to connect to it maybe because they did before? Another question, in the IOS app I have a choice, when there is an auto block, to "Ignore this warning", seems to be the only way to get it off the alarmlist, what does this really do? Does it what i think it does and just removes it from the list i.e i don't want to see it, or does it mean that in the future Firewalla will ignore that traffic?
Are you running beta version? Did you turn on the naughty monkey feature? If that feature is on, it may randomly create some fake alarms for testing purpose. This iPad alarm may come from the monkey feature. If this is the case, you may turn off the monkey feature unless you really want to turn that on.
For the "Ignore this warning" wording, the UI should be improved. It may use "Archive" instead of "ignore..", which, as you said, just removes it off the alarm list. It does not mean it will ignore in the future.
As usaual, a superfast answer, which explains it, i am running beta and the naughty monkey feature, thanks then i know, i was really mostly curious :-)
Sounds great, yeah "ignore" is somewhat missleading :-)
All my questions answered, i am happy!!
Keep up the good work.
