 Genesis of a Linux guru

"Buer believed that Secureworks had to eliminate the need to do time-consuming reconfiguration on the client's network. He'd always been interested in Linux, and he had an idea. Why not use proxy ARP to simplify the install procedure? Proxy ARP allows a firewall to respond to address resolution protocol (ARP) requests for hosts other than itself. This is far less intrusive than standard address resolution requests on the network, which meant the beginning of a simpler installation procedure for Buer and Secureworks."
