It's not entirely clear where you are applying the route ? is it on a server or on a router.

means to get to host send the packet to Yes you would if you just want to specify a destination host.

yes..the route is for one specific host...

the configuration entry would be on the router,,

so all 255's?

it looks like it is routing the entire subnet

instead of one device

i only want one device to use this route

Router#sh ip route

Routing entry for, 1 known subnets

Redistributing via eigrp 1

Yes all 255's which specifies it is a host entry rather than a subnet entry.

You need to use a route map that will match the source(ftp server) and set ip next hop (new ip)
