Proxy ARP on VSX, confusion about the local.arp file format

Hello, I am attempting to configure Proxy ARP on a r80.10 VSX. I am confused by the documentation.

At the page Configuring Proxy ARP for Manual NAT:

Expand the "Procedure for Gaia OS in VSX mode - R76 / R77 / R77.10 and above - context of any Virtual System, other than VS0 (VSX itself)" section

Expand: "VSX Cluster in High Availability or VSLS mode".

 

The example instructs to create a file in the following format:

IP_address_of_Host_1_that_should_be_published    MAC_address_of_interface    Real_IP_address_of_interface

 

But then it shows the following:

20.30.40.3    00:A0:C9:E8:C7:75    192.168.196.1

 

I am confused by the 192.168.196.1, since the "ifconfig" output presents 102.168.196.2 as the interface IP. Why is the guide suggesting to use .2, where does that ip come from? I suspect a typo but would like some confirmation.

 

Thanks
