Advanced - Network - Connection - Settings - Manual proxy configuration
with SOCKS 5 tunnel, and
No proxy for:
127.0.0.1, localhost, smarthome
and I have a string in my hosts file:
So when I type in URL bar
Basilisk should look for "smarthome" in my hosts file and connect to my local server.
Instead it goes to
though without proxy in Basilisk configuration it doesn't do that.
Thus, proxy exceptions don't work with the hosts file.
It's a bug.
Thus I assume that you'll get the same results with any other browser you'd test with.
- If you type in the URL bar http://smarthome/cafe/boil the browser (with proxy enabled) will try to connect to that address.
- If the proxy is disabled the browser can't connect to http://smarthome/cafe/boil since your hosts file is blocking this address by redirecting it to 127.0.0.1, your local machine where no proxy is listening anymore.
If you have a local network and you want to redirect to it from your hosts file than you'll have to try something like this:
Code: Select all
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost
However this topic is not related to Basilisk but rather to how to configure my hosts file.

gepus, no, I was trying to say that the domain I tried to reach ("smarthome") was served from IP 127.0.0.1, and it was explicitly said in the hosts file.
As it is a valid domain found in hosts file, the browser should not go to any outer DNS servers or make substitutions.
Otherwise it's a bug.
