Description

This is not a huge priority, but when deleting static DHCP mappings for devices that are offline / not on network and thus not in arp cache, the log will be filled with

/services_dhcp_edit.php: The command '/usr/sbin/arp -d '192.168.20.60" returned exit code '1', the output was 'arp: writing to routing socket: No such file or directory'

Simply piping the output of that arp -d command to /dev/null should solve this and reduce log spam.
