Site-pref Proxy switching Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I am guessing this is super-low priority as the proxy server is probably chosen at a lower level, but I'd love the ability to specify certain sites to be routed through a proxy.

I have certain sites I'd like to have encrypted that aren't, and have an SSH tunnel I could put traffic through.
We use the system Proxy settings in the Network pane. Unfortunately it has limited customizability in what domains it affects.
I'd also love to see this feature implemented.
This can already be done by writing a proxy.pac file (which is actually written in javascript).

I'll offer up mine as an example, but lots of doco is available if you google... I've replaced stuff I don't want to share with XXX.

 * On the network, we need to use proxy
 * to not get blocked by barracuda
function FindProxyForURL(url, host)

    // if I can't resolve XXX, I'm probably at home. Return DIRECT.
    if (!isResolvable("")) {
        return "DIRECT";
    // if the target is plain (no domain info), go DIRECT
    if (isPlainHostName(host) ||
        dnsDomainIs(host, ".stage") ||
        dnsDomainIs(host, ".test") ||
        dnsDomainIs(host, ".inside") ||
        dnsDomainIs(host, ".sydney") ||
        dnsDomainIs(host, "") ||
        host == "") {
        return "DIRECT";

    // if the target host is within or 203.2.XXX.0/24 return DIRECT
    if (isInNet(host, "", "") ||
        isInNet(host, "203.2.XXX.0", "")){
        return "DIRECT";

    // if we are getting something from, return the other proxy as .92 has issues
    if (dnsDomainIs(host, "")) {
        return "PROXY;DIRECT";
    // otherwise return the proxy
    return "PROXY;DIRECT";
