Even though the physical connection is the same, the .1 address is in a
different subnet entirely than .161, due to the /27 prefix length.
10.0.253.160/27 encompasses 161-190. It's a good thing FreeBSD breaks in
this case ;)
You will need to change your prefix length to /24 on the host, or add a
secondary IP from the 160/27 range to the gateway to make this work.
