There is a website I want to connect to via a specific IP. It uses CluodFlare and I am constantly having to deal with the captcha. Via a normal browser I can connect to the website by adding the site and the real IP to my /etc/hosts like:   domain.info

And this bypasses CloudFlare. However, I am unable to connect to the website via Tor.

Is there a way I can tell tor to connect to this domain on the real IP?

  • Have you tried asking the site operators to loosen the restrictions? There are settings within the Cloudflare control panel that allow you to dial back these things. Mar 29, 2016 at 0:29
  • Luckily CloudFlare has stopped going crazy. It was nuts last week. Mar 29, 2016 at 22:24

If you want to just connect to this website with your real IP address, you can add it to $no_proxy environment variable. See this: https://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/html_node/Proxies.html


You can do it if you're using a firewall and transparent proxy mode for tor, it can be done ASA destination-based exception. The tor itself can not have it done neither via config, nor via environment cars, and this is right : it's another network stack components duty to perform the task you need
