Connect to external host with/as local ip came up in the close que and it exposes a fundamental but common lack of understanding of how network routing works. It is undoubtedly a bad question, but unfortunately it is clear that the asker does not have the understanding to ask a good question.

I would like a canonical question on cross subnet address changes to point these folks to.

    I was working on one for a general overview of networking. Very early draft is at docs.google.com/document/d/… ... which is editable by anyone with the link. But it probably needs a lot more work, and probably to be split into smaller parts.
