Any way to selectively send outbound traffic through a proxy per destination?



  • Hey all
    Is there a way to use rules to send traffic to specific hosts through an outbound proxy?



  • If your destination(s) can be defined in terms of an IP range, you can forward  (Firewall -> NAT -> Port Forward) only packets destined to specific IPs to your proxy. However if your destinations are domains (e.g. gmail, hotmail etc) keep in mind that nowadays many sites use CDNs scattered around the world, which makes simple port forwarding useless.

    A pfSense feature has been discussed in the past, see http://redmine.pfsense.org/issues/1901
