I'm often using personal vpn to access computers on LAN. But I can't use it with Blokada. Blokada supports vpn, but only their servers.
Allow user to add custom server as vpn to Blokada.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Try to use custom vpn with Blokada

Expected behaviour

App has option to add custom vpn

Actual behaviour

App uses hardcoded vpn server

Configuration

  1. Blokada version

  2. Device model

  3. Android version / ROM

Questions

  1. How long have you been using Blokada?

  2. How long time ago has the problem started to happen?

  3. How often does this problem happen to you?

Relevant #111

We do plan to bring support to Wireguard and OpenVPN protocols, this will solve your request. It's a bit of work though. Anyone interested in this please vote on this ticket so that we can judge the interest.

Can you elaborate? I cannot see how I'm able to set custom vpn servers in v4, just choose between Blokada provided ones

This would be much appreciated, if lack of this feature is due to monetization, I wouldn't mind paying one time fee to unlock this and support the devs.

I care about self hosted wireguard for security and in order to provide access to internal services, implement my own packet montioring etc.

Thanks

It's a lack of having someone to do the dev work. It's not as easy as it sounds. It's quite intense actually. They keep making the Android base more complicated and restricted with networking all the time too and this complicates things. It's like basically building a whole other app into this one by doing this, from the ground up. It's not the money so much the time and work to build the code then actually make it function properly.

Yes that's true, this whole conversation is due to android offering only single network processing layer in the form of a "VPN", you shouldn't need to build a fully functional VPN client if you are doing ad blocking..

I also realized that if someone is deploying their own wireguard, they might as well implement DIY blocking on the server, using the same lists and strategy you use. I can drop an update here for interested parties if I go in this direction.

Ok, thanks for the clarification and amazing work! love the app, I know you have the donation button, I'd subscribe if you had a patreon as well.

I considered this, but that way it’s not possible to define app-specific exceptions.

Hello, I'm very interested personally and it would be very useful to me. Do you think it will be added ?
