How to exclude apps from VPN

Recommended Posts

Hi, i wonder how i can exclude Eddie from specific processes. I've been reading than that is not posible directly and the only way to do it is by using network config.

Particulary i want to use a browser instance without VPN and if it's posible i want to play League Of Legends.

I use Windows 7 and Manjaro Linux

Could you please help me? Thanks in advance

Wherever you read it, it's not possible directly. The closest you can get is to configure your network similar to a guide on how to run OpenVPN without setting the default gateway. In the parent directory you can also find a guide for Windows.

» If you're new, take some time to read LZ1's New User Guide to AirVPN. On questions, use the search function first. On errors, search for the error message instead.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.


» Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, chances are you will be unique amond the mass again.

I did search but only found solutions for Windows. I guess the answer is that Eddie on Linux is similar to on Windows in this regard. I also looked at this thread:

to see if I could find something there I could use. That one is Mac specific but has references to solutions for Linux. I am not a developer at all so I found it to be complicated. Anyhow, thank you for help and answers.

If those solutions are too complex, you might consider a Virtual Machine. Nowadays software like VirtualBox and VMWare make running a VM a piece of cake, you just need some time (once and for all) to install an OS from scratch. Then you can connect only the VM to the VPN (exactly as you do now in your machine) and use the applications whose traffic must be tunneled only in the VM. Host traffic will remain out of the VPN.

Kind regards
