1. A single known ip address that redirects to the closest internal repo server. redirects to a usable subnet ip in 172.16.xx.xx by static route.

2. Internal private network that is reachable by clients.

A colleague of mine has static routed<> to a usable IP address, to have a single known IP address be static routed to a regions closest server. While I understand the IP address does work (pings and what not), I don't feel this should be the proper IP address used, but something more feasible like a usable IP in a dedicated range (<> for example).

Hi Ryan,

Some clarifications:

1. You say, "static routed to a regions closest server." What do you mean by that? A static-routed anycast address?

2. In what reachability context? Is this a private network? An ISP network where the reachability should be the ISP and its customers?
