I'm using Vanilla Android 4.2.2 on my Nexus4, and I'm using a proxy to access the internet. I wanted to add a proxy exception for addresses on my local subnet 192.168.0.* , is there anyway to do this?

I've tried adding 192.168.0 and this doesn't work, It doesn't accept 192.168.0.*, and doesn't work either.

Has anyone attempted this before? Does anyone know how this can be done?

A similar question was already answered here — apparently there is no way to configure proxy exceptions for IP address ranges when using the builtin proxy support. – Sergey Vlasov Jun 9 '13 at 14:31
That's just sad. I was hoping android to be more configurable. Maybe the android market has an application. Could you please put your comment up as answer so that I can select close the question? – ffledgling Jun 9 '13 at 22:37
Have you tried adding it as or whatever other range you want? – Bruce Apr 4 at 11:26

Certainly you cannot enter the beginning and the ending address, so probably you can try entering all the ip address from beginning to end

I'm pretty sure that's not what I want to do. Not when I can have 10+ devices running on my local subnet, each of which changes its IP when the router reboots. – ffledgling Jun 9 '13 at 22:38
