Proxy ARP Explained


(Carlo Emmanuel V) #21

I’ve seen this command in many routers no ip proxy-arp. So this mean that the feature is disable? The router will not reply with its MAC address and discard this ARP?

Hello Carlo

Yes that is correct. In most IOS versions, proxy arp is enabled by default. This will disable it and will prevent the router from responding on behalf of another host.

I hope this has been helpful!
