proxy ARP


Also found in: Wikipedia.

proxy ARP

(networking)
The technique in which one host, usually a router, answers Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) requests intended for another machine. By "faking" its identity, the router accepts responsibility for routing packets to the "real" destination. Proxy ARP allows a site to use a single IP address with two physical networks. Subnetting would normally be a better solution.

The measures taken include blocking traffic from unregistered routers and restricting broadcast traffic to specific areas by implementing Proxy ARP in SDN switches.
The solution provides a rich set of features for service classification, policing and shaping for ingress and egress traffic flows complete with Occam's IP Security Management framework available on a per service basis with support for IGMP, DHCP Relay, Proxy ARP, MAC forced forwarding, Denial of Service protection and other mechanisms.
Proxy ARP that will let an access point respond to ARP requests enabling stations to power down for longer periods.
Software Routing with RIP/RIP2, DHCP relay, Proxy ARP support
New capabilities in software include enhanced Quality of Service (class of service Queue mapping, color aware QoS) and differential services (enhanced QoS and COS mapping, L2 and L3/L4 ACL integration, and per-port egress rate limiting), enhanced routing features (IP multi-netting, proxy ARP, and traceroute), enhanced switching (IGMPv3 snooping per VLAN, port mirroring (many-to-many and many-to-one, port security), static multicast streams, full IP multicast protocol suite and secure web management and full SNMP solution to name just a few.
1x authentication capabilities, VPN enhancements through IPSec support, and a Voice over IP (VoIP) Proxy ARP security option.
The new Proxy ARP and Extended Protocol Filtering features reduce network congestion and extend battery life by filtering out unwanted traffic that can needlessly awake a sleeping radio.
Networking enhancements include Port Mapping for mapping of Internet traffic associated with particular ports, Routing Information Protocol (RIP) for faster route setup, Proxy Arp for a faster connection setup, and Dial-on-Demand Routing enabling the user to dial any one of 16 locations depending on the profile setup.
