Welcome to the project page for parpd, a RFC 1027 compliant Proxy ARP Daemon. A lot of the code is taken from dhcpcd so it's very stable from the off!

Downloading parpd

parpd is released under the 2 clause BSD license.

Installing parpd

Change the version as required.

cd /tmp
tar xvjpf /path/to/parpd-1.5.tar.bz2
cd parpd-1.5
make install

Configuring parpd

Configuration is found in the file /etc/parpd.conf
Comment lines should start with # or ;
Each line compromises of two or three words - command, inet address and an optional hardware address

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
