Depends, if you want just a single machine, as I suspect you do, xx should 
be 32.

As a counter example, if you wanted to do a range of 167.205.64.0 through 
167.205.64.255 it would be declared as 167.205.64.0/24.

If you're familiar with binary, XX is just a bitmask specifying the number 
of most-significant bits to honor, and the rest are treated as wildcards.
