The proxyarp setting is required on the gateway, not the remote machine.

man pppd reads thus:


       proxyarp
              Add  an entry to this system's ARP [Address Resolu­
              tion Protocol] table with the  IP  address  of  the
              peer and the Ethernet address of this system.  This
              will have the effect of making the peer  appear  to
              other systems to be on the local ethernet.


The last sentence is the most interesting bit. :)
