       proxyarp - Shorewall Proxy ARP file




       This file is used to define Proxy ARP. There is one entry in this file
       for each IP address to be proxied.

       The columns in the file are as follows.

       ADDRESS - address
           IP Address.

       INTERFACE - interface
           Local interface where system with the ip address in ADDRESS is

       EXTERNAL - interface
           External Interface to be used to access this system from the

       HAVEROUTE - [-|Yes|No]
           If there is already a route from the firewall to the host whose
           address is given, enter Yes or yes in this column. Otherwise, enter
           no or No or leave the column empty and Shorewall will add the route
           for you. If Shorewall adds the route, its persistence depends on
           the value of thePERSISTENT column contains Yes; otherwise,
           shorewall stop or shorewall clear will delete the route.

       PERSISTENT - [-|Yes|No]
           If HAVEROUTE is No or no, then the value of this column determines
           if the route added by Shorewall persists after a shorewall stop or
           a shorewall clear. If this column contains Yes or yes then the
           route persists; If the column is empty or contains No or no then
           the route is deleted by shorewall stop or shorewall clear.


       Example 1:
           Host with IP is connected to interface eth1 and we
           want hosts attached via eth0 to be able to access it using that

                      #ADDRESS        INTERFACE       EXTERNAL
               eth1            eth0
