My LG LS840 Viper 4G LTE (Sprint) recently upgraded to 4.0/ICS. Under 2.3/GB the proxy settings had been disabled entirely, but I am now able to set up per-network proxy settings for the various WiFi networks I attach to. Except—
Is there a way to add wildcards to the proxy bypass list? On (say) “Work WiFi” I can add
example.com to the proxy bypass list, but not
*.example.com. If any of the entries in the list have an asterisk, the Save button is disabled.
Is this a limitation in Android, or one which Sprint & LG have imposed on me? Is there a work-around?
ETA: A coworker running into a similar issue wit Cyanogenmod suggested
.example.com (leading dot, no asterisk); this work-around works for him, but my phone rejects this form as well.
