Meaning of PROXY ARP

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

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.
