Hey guys

Is there any way to exclude a specific app (textual, an IRC client) on mac using vpn/viscosity traffic? I use Viscosity along side some other vpn apps and really need to exclude an app completely using any kind of vpns. So let me know please if there's any way/trick/idea doing that. I'm ready doing anything you suggest me but installing a virtualbox just for an IRC client!! :D

Thank you

Hi mothback,

I'm afraid it's not possible to route traffic based on the app, but you can route traffic based on the server/s the app is using. For example, with an IRC client you could set up route that exclude traffic to/from your IRC server from going through the VPN connection. Please see the following support article for more details: ... lications/
