Autoconnect request for arp-scanner

arp-scanner is an IP scanner that uses ARP requests to find active devices in the local network. To work on Linux, the application needs access to /proc/net/arp.

Therefore, I’d like to request autoconnect for the network-control plug.
Without access to /proc/net/arp the program is useless, requiring every user to connect this connector manually.

Hi @Stone_Red,

If the snap is meant to just fetch and display the arp info, then I think network-observe interface should suffice the purpose here. Let me know if you have already tried the network-observe interface and faced any error
