Use this command to enable proxy Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) on a data plane interface.

Proxy ARP allows a data plane interface to respond with its own media access control (MAC) address to ARP requests for destination IP addresses on subnets that are attached to other interfaces on the system. Subsequent packets sent to those destination IP addresses are forwarded appropriately by the system.

Use the set form of this command to enable proxy ARP on an interface.

Use the delete form of this command to return the system to its default behavior, that is, proxy ARP is not enabled on a data plane interface.
