Automatic dropping of out-of-scope requests
There are many connections to domains outside of the defined scope, like detectportal.firefox.com, safebrowsing.googleapis.com and others. Is it possible to entirely drop such requests? That they would never make it through proxy; and also so that they wouldn't be populated in the Alerts? If I'm behind proxy, I can see many of such connections to out-of-scope domains which I don't want to pass through; or even see as "Unknown host" in Alerts section as it triggers plenty of false positives.
Configure suitable scope for what you want to include and exclude, and enable the “drop out of scope requests” option at Project options > Connections > Out-of_Scope Requests.
However, I still see many alerts because of the "Blocked out-of-scope request" and "No response received from remote server".
I mainly asked this because of too many logs in Alerts tab. Would it be possible to have an option to not see these in Alert tab?
For the Firefox ping, I disable this within Firefox:- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157121
We do plan to add a feature to hide “chatty” requests like that. In the meantime, the Proxy Action Rules extension has a feature to “AutoDrop” specific hosts.
While I understand the annoyance within getting many alerts, at present we’ve no plans to make that configurable.
Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
