    I tried to connect to e.g. thepiratebay from the country where I'm in at the moment and found that the ISP is filtering few specific sited.
    Not a big deal using a proxy I can sort it out easily however performance is not the best. Looking up in Internet I've found this easy way to redirect firefox to a proxy for specific sites using a local .pac file:

    function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {
    host = host.toLowerCase();
    if (dnsDomainIs(host, “whatismyip.comâ€))
    return “PROXY″; // (IP:port)
    if (dnsDomainIs(host, “speedtest.netâ€))
    return “PROXY″; // (IP:port)
    return “DIRECTâ€;

    Reference: http://www.evilbox.ro/windows/proxy-only-for-certain-sites/

    Now, can you think of a way to achieve this with tomato? So far I can redirect all the traffic to a local proxy using:

    #iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i br0 -s -p tcp --dport 80 -j DNAT --to
    #iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o br0 -s -p tcp -d -j SNAT --to
    #ptables -t filter -I FORWARD -d -i br0 -o br0 -p tcp --dport 3128 -j ACCEPT
    If I can apply this to an Internet proxy and add something to apply the rule for specific FQDN only it should achieve what I'm looking for...

    L7? Any input?

    Thanks :)
