IP conflit with arp proxy enabled

          Hello Experts,

last friday I had problem with  IP conflit address  from cisco router 2911 , all the time the router respond with ARP reply (duplicate use of IP : x.y.z.t with the same Mac Address ) and the IP subject of conflit dosen't appear in any router's interfaces configuration  (basic configuration without dhcp) ,the problem was solved  problem when I desactivete proxy arp but I can't understand this behavior , why arp proxy respond to all IP address with same Mac even the IP dosen't exist in router ?

Thanks for your responses.

Hi,

as long as the router that has proxy-arp enabled knows how to get to this IP it will  ARP reply with its MAC.
