Here are some examples:
# parpd.conf example # These two do the same thing proxy 192.168.0.0/24 proxy 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 # Send this hardware address to this host proxy 192.168.0.5 aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff # Ignore a host ignore 192.168.0.8
# another parpd.conf example # This one is more interesting - it tells parpd to proxy all ARP requests # except for a specific subnet. proxy 0.0.0.0 ignore 10.0.0.0/24
