(Optional) Enabling Proxy ARP on the VLANIF Interface of a Super-VLAN

(Optional) Enabling Proxy ARP on the VLANIF Interface of a Super-VLAN


VLAN aggregation does not support Layer 3 communication between hosts in different sub-VLANs.

To enable hosts in one sub-VLAN to communicate with hosts in another sub-VLAN or on another network over Layer 3, enable proxy ARP.

After a super-VLAN and its VLANIF interface are created, proxy ARP must be enabled to allow the super-VLAN to forward or process ARP request and reply packets. Proxy ARP helps PCs in sub-VLANs communicate with each other at the network layer.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run interface vlanif vlan-id

    The view of the VLANIF interface of the super-VLAN is displayed.

  3. Run arp proxy inter-vlan enable

    Inter-sub-VLAN proxy ARP is enabled.

    An IP address must have been assigned to the VLANIF interface corresponding to the super-VLAN. Otherwise, proxy ARP cannot take effect.

  4. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
