Add custom bypass URL's for VPN

  • Currently there is the option to enable the "Bypass VPN for default search engines". When at a corporate network I would like the ability to add in a custom URL pattern to bypass the VPN. I have to manually switch on and off the VPN all the time.

    For example I work at company awesome.com. The company has internal advanced networking and protected access to internal servers all in the form of <service>.awesome.com. Since they cannot be accessed from outside the network with the VPN enabled it does not exist. With the custom bypass I can allow all awesome.com traffic to stay within the network, but all other traffic goes through the VPN. Right now I have to manually switch on and off the VPN all the time to get my work done.

    Thank you 🙂

  • VPN in Opera is very useful and great. But the only improvement I think would be in order is implementing extra modes to use VPN in. Currently it's either ON everywhere or OFF everywhere. I think that implementing a "ON on a list of sites" or "OFF on a list of sites" option would benefit both the user experience (faster speed on sites you don't need VPN on, while still enjoying security for the sites you want VPN on) and the opera devs (currently more often than not I just leave VPN ON all the time, resulting in a serious amount of traffic for your servers, while I only find a portion of that traffic really useful, rest is waste).
