I was thinking the other day that it would be nice to have something to notify me when new devices get connected to my network.

A network notify script for new devices would allow me to get a better understanding for what is going on in my LAN. People come over all the time and connect their machines to my wifi network. While I trust my friends and family to connect on my network, I also know that people war drive. War driving is when you drive around and connect to random wifi networks. (which I'm not opposed to, I like the idea of free net access... just don't like people getting access to my LAN where they can browse my machines and access files.)

Anyways, there is a tool out there to accomplish this task. It goes by the name of arpalert.

ArpAlert is a program that records all MAC addresses of the machines on your network. (without going into promiscuous mode!)
