Hey! Just wondered about general usability of Proxy ARP.
I understand the basic concepts of the service from a Cisco training mindset.
However, I’d like to know if it’s possible to manually specify an IP Address to respond to ARP’s from.
I think it would be beneficial (for me anyway) to be able to configure a VyOS interface to response for ARP’s for certain IP’s but not have configured the IP Address it self.
This would then allow the VyOS to route to that IP via. it’s routing table.
I have ‘eth0’ configured with the following;
:: set interfaces eth0 address 18.104.22.168/24
and a Static route for, 22.214.171.124/32 next-hop 192.168.50.1 (eth1)
I would like to configure ‘eth0’ to respond for ARP’s bound for 126.96.36.199.
Then VyOS would receive the packet and forward out of eth1, to 192.168.50.1.
I hope this makes sense - just wondered if anyone can think of a way to configure it?
