       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.

              IP Address.

              Local interface where system with the ip address in  ADDRESS  is

              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,the route will be
              persistent if the PERSISTENT  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
