Exclude Websites Not Working

When I add entries to the 'Exclude Websites' list they're still routed through the proxy. For example, I tried adding whatismyip.com, and tested with whatismyip.com, www.whatismyip.com, and https://www.whatismyip.com, but the site always shows the proxy address, not my ISP's address.

 

Can someone confirm that this feature is working, or if I'm missing something in the syntax for these entries? I understand that they should be separated with semi-colons, but it doesn't even work if I test with single entries.

Hi there, can I ask what chrome browser version you are running there? also what version of our extension are you running?

 

Regards

I also cannot get the "exclude websites" to work. Everything is run through the proxy so I have to completely disable it every time I want to watch Netflix or Amazon video. I am running Chrome browser version 79.0.3945.79 (Official Build) (64-bit).  The Torguard extension version is 1.4.1. Does the function simply not work?

Hi - Netflix use many different domains for providing you content juste excluding netflix.com won't work.

Ah so. I guess that's why none of the exclusions I put in the list are excluded. They are all probably the same: all 3 are video viewing sites (Netflix, Amazon and TCM) that use multiple domains due to the nature of their services.

Thanks so much for explaining! I am a newbie and don't have the knowledge that most do here.  Thanks!

After not being able to use the web app reliably, searching everywhere for how to do this properly and trying to edit the ovpn files with no success, I found this article https://support.nvpn.net/Knowledgebase/Article/View/412/41/how-to-exclude-a-website--ip-from-going-through-the-vpn.

  • follow the instructions in the article
  • use this or other similar websites to find all ip's of the website your excluding
  • add whatsmyip.com or similar site to test it out
  • restart vpn
  • enjoy having specific websites excluded from your vpn
  • this method is for use with the vpn(desktop app)

 

For those who only require the proxy, browser addons such as this one allow socks 5 proxy authentication as well as blacklisting websites such as amazon with one simple entry. (will be using temporarily until torguard updates their browser addons to a stable version, hopefully with wildcard entry's 🌚🚀🛰️)

This will only work with a website that has 1 IP - many use multiple IP's or even CDN type services such as Cloudflare.

This website is behind Cloudflare - as above this is a CDN which will use many different IP's.

Can we get some kind of documentation on this? Do the websites need to be written as http://example.com or http://www.example.com or http://*.example.com or https://example.com or https://www.example.com or https://*.example.com or example.com or www.example.com? If I need to use a port https://www.example.com:5456 do i need to add an exclusion for each port? Are there wildcards? Can we get wildcards? Can we get a button that adds the current website to exclusions and works when we are not connected?

 

I've tried ever possible combination and nothing is working.

For firefox at least, I use foxyproxy and have no issues using multiple different proxies for different usage and networks. It supports also wildcards and regex. The only issue with foxyproxy is that it does not work properly on chrome.

In foxyproxy,

Example for Torguard proxy where all pages except onion and i2p should use this proxy

Whitelisted (all pages):

[a-zA-Z0-9_.-]+\.*(?:[:0-9]+)?

Blacklist (never use for local, onion and i2p)

[a-zA-Z0-9_.-]+\.onion(?:[:0-9]+)?
[a-zA-Z0-9_.-]+\.i2p(?:[:0-9]+)?

 

based on above, you have another proxy for onion network where you want all onion sites (tor) to be used with this proxy:

Whitelisted (only onion addresses use this proxy):

[a-zA-Z0-9_.-]+\.onion(?:[:0-9]+)?

Blacklisted (local ip's and i2p should never use this proxy):

[a-zA-Z0-9_.-]+\.i2p(?:[:0-9]+)?

 

And so on....

 

However, this is for sure not the hassle worth. For netflix and other services you can find out which servers/ip's netflix uses, but that solution will not last for long as those change too. By far cheapest and easiest solution is to buy something like streaming ip from torguard which will work with I guess all video streaming services.

You can also use/run your own vps but bear in mind that most isp's have marked their servers and video streaming platforms know about them. In some cases you can send email to provider of your subscription (like iptv providers) and ask to add your shared/vps/torguard ip.

It is not worth wasting time on all the time editing. Its worth paying for streaming ip, especially taken in mind that in some countries some services cost much less and that pays already most if not all of your streaming ip costs, please use search engines and check for countries offering your service much cheaper, then you probably know :) better which streaming ip you will need.
