Ex 4500 static route

Hello friends ,

     We have a network with a topology sth like that

MX 80   -  --------    Ex 4500  -----------  Ex4200 switches.

We are creating vlans on EX 4500 and we are trunking them to ex 4200 switch ports.

We have public ip addresses from the ripe. For efficiency of usafe ipv4 resources we are looking for a solution.
And i want to know that if it is possible or not to write a static route to a vlan for /32

each vlan has an internal ip subnet as :  
but if we use the /32 public ip address as additional ip address then the machine can not access to the web because the main ip is being an internal ip.

Is there any possibility to use /32 ip address on a vlan port as a main ip address of a server ?
If i write a network config as that on the server

Ipv4 address : xx.xx.xx.xx (Public ip)
Subnet :
gw :

and if i route the xx.xx.xx.xx to does it work  ?

Thank you

/32 range of ip address can be assigned to only loopback interfaces

Still confused about your requirement? can elaborate it please

We have a network topology like on the image .
We have created all vlans on the Ex 4500 beacause MX has too many static routes.
Some of our customers using only 1 ip address. And we do not want to let them be in default vlan / native vlan. We only want to use access vlans on each port on ex 4200.

So how should we let them use single routed ip address while the port has access to a specific vlan

Each port has different vlans on EX 4200

I don't see how you can do that and still call it a VLAN.
A VLAN is a broadcast domain and so it needs a broadcast address and a gateway. Not possible with a single IP.

The separation you want may be possible, but not using VLANs.
