I never understood this: If the domain is a literal ip address, why the reson is “Proxy/VPN”?
I have a VPN on my android smarphone, and if I want it to work i must disable in the access control “Proxy/VPN”, but, at the same time, i have to disable “Literal IP addresses” too, but the reason of the block is only “Proxy/VPN”.
I have noticed this behavior ever since I bought your router, on many other occasions, but now I want to understand the reason for this behavior.
I don’t have the knowledge to understand this, or it can be a bug?
@casino When you block Proxy/VPN, the router automatically blocks literal IP addresses for encrypted traffic. Because the router cannot look inside the encrypted traffic to see if the connection is actually being used as a proxy, it assumes that the connection might be a proxy and blocks it.
@casino The host changer app has no effect at all. It just changes the DNS server IP addresses on your phone, plus the option to add your own host name to IP address mappings. This is no different from changing the DNS server IP address on your PC from “Automatic” to 18.104.22.168 (for example). Something else is happening on your phone.
