proxy-arp not working when request came from the same interface where target is

Thu Aug 13, 2015 10:05 am

Guys, I have a network, I have a router and a L2 switch, to which 2 hosts are connected. I need the hosts and to access each other. Communications between hosts is blocked on the switch but the hosts can access their default gateway.

If I set proxy-arp on the Mikrotik's interface it won't work, because it apparently will not reply to ARP requests which came from the same interface the target is located in.

Can anything be done here?
