There's a mild trick to this that's easy to miss. has a netmask of (most likely). cannot match that netmask, as such it
can't be found on the 172.16 network. As such, it can NOT be a gateway for
what you are trying to do. However, it is possible to do so. I'm gonna need a
few minutes to describe everything, so wanted to give you a short heads up.
I'll be sending another email in a minute.
