nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn: No such device or address



When setting up a proxy-arp on a Solaris or Linux platform with a command like: arp -s nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn 00:11:22:33:44:55 pubYou might see the error:

nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn: No such device or addressThe IP address specified in the proxy-arp must be on the same subnet as one of your interface IPs. If it is not, you will not need to do the ARP (and will get this error). Instead, you will have to solve the problem by making sure an upstream router can route that IP to your firewall.
