Proxy ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) is a technique by which a device on a given network answers the ARP queries for a network address that is not on that network.

hi,

Proxy ARP can be used in a network where clients placed on different physical networks are configured as if they are all on the same subnet. It can be used to create a subnetting effect without changing the network configuration of the devices. A router or switch with the Proxy ARP feature enabled will reply to any broadcast with its own MAC address. Clients that tries to communicate with devices outside the local network will be sent to the router or switch that then forwards the traffic.


Thanks

Proxy ARP is the technique in which one host, usually a router, answers ARP requests intended for another machine. By "faking" its identity, the router accepts responsibility for routing packets to the "real" destination.

Proxy ARP is a technique by which a device on a given network answers the ARP queries for a network address that is not on that network. The ARP Proxy is aware of the location of the traffic's destination, and offers its own MAC address as (ostensibly final) destination.

Hi,

Proxy ARP allows a router to answer ARP requests when the target IP address is not that of the router itself but a destination that the router can reach. If a host does not know the default gateway, proxy ARP can learn the first hop. Machines in one physical network appear to be part of another logical network. Without proxy ARP, a router responds to an ARP request only if the target IP address is an address configured on the interface where the ARP request arrived.

Thanks.
