Let's say I have a server with a public IP address and its physically located close to me, e.g., in my town. I access this server from my home PC through the internet. Is there a way to ensure that after the initial stages of connectivity (DNS lookup etc), my home PC can connect to this server and transfer data (upload/download) using the shortest path (without my data circumventing the globe). Basically, how do i set up and ensure that I am connecting to this server using the shortest path and connecting to it point to point (once the initial stages like DNS lookup and other processes are completed). This way, I could get better CDN-like data transfer speeds between my home PC and the server located closely to me.
