The proxyarp setting is required on the gateway, not the remote machine.
man pppd reads thus:
Add an entry to this system's ARP [Address Resolu

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. :)
