What is proxy arp?

Let’s start by understanding what an ARP is — a protocol used for finding the lowest layers of the Internet protocol, such as MAC addresses, that are connected with their own internet layers. Proxy ARP, in that case, transfers ARP responses (which can be a MAC address) taken from one part of the network to another. This is usually done by routers that can deliver ARP responses from point A to point B.
