My ISP said that proxy ARP was disabled in their Cisco router. They 
enabled it and after waiting appx. 3 hours everything seems to work now. I 
was just that it is a production environment and waiting for 3 hour seems 
too long...

But this brings the question whether or not you should also be able to use 
"real IP addresses" instead of proxy arping. Manuel: is there a reason why 
you couldn't have both possibilities?
