How to create an proxyarp entry in arp table by using arp command?

I need to setup proxyarp entry in arp table in my linux server to support a remote connection.

the remote computer is, and the linux server is

I add a proxyarp entry into the arp table by using the arp command as below:

#arp -v -s 00:E0:183:F2:17 pub

00:E0:183:F2:17 is the hardware address of the linux server

but the result is: ether 00:E0:183:F2:9C C eth0 ether 00:00:81:A0:82:62 C eth0 ether 00:50:BA:B1:4D:09 C eth0 ether 00:E0:4C:73:FDF C eth0 * * MP eth0

the entry I added does not has the flag C which means this is a complete entry.

I don't know why it is.

Please tell me how to setup the proxyarp and how can I test if it works well by a simple way? Thanks!!!
