-=> #arp -i eth1 -s 00:00:21:60:66:2f pub
i connected several networks using proxyarp in this way

arp -i eth1 -Ds ip_on_eth0 eth1 pub
route add -host ip_on_eth0 eth0

arp -i eth0 -Ds ip_on_eth1 eth0 pub
route add -host ip_on_eth1 eth1

-=> Is Linux supposed to proxy arp requests under this configuration ? If so,
-=>what I'm doing wrong ? Does this configuration work fine with 2.2.5 ?
what I propose works both on 2.0.36 and 2.2.5

what you did incorrectly is that either you didn't set up routes, either
didn't add public arp entries properly.
