I'm using the app from Freedom.to to block Internet traffic while I'm writing.

Freedom.to works by setting a proxy to filter out Internet traffic.

I want to whitelist TheBrain on the Mac so I can keep using it while blocking the Internet out.

Here are the Mac settings I added:

Settings > Network > Advanced > Proxies

I've added the following two domains to the proxy bypass:

*thebrain.com, *webbrain.com

However, when syncing I get the following two errors:

"Unexpected file end from server"

"Sync failed. please try again in a few minutes. Error: Uploading not completed successfully"

I also tried configuring the proxy server setting within theBrain so the proxy settings of Freedom.to could be used. I set to the address to and set the ports to 443,80. That did not work either.

Please advise.



Thanks for posting. TheBrain.exe to communicate with the WebBrain server at webbrain.com over the standard HTTPS and HTTP ports (443 and 80).

By default, synchronization is protected using 128-bit AES Encryption on port 443. This is the same encryption used by the US government to protect classified information. If the app you've described does not enable an SSL connection, you can disable encryption and use port 80 by logging out of TheBrain: (File > Log Out) and changing the 'Server & proxy settings' option located at the bottom left of the log in screen from 'webbrain.com' to 'http://webbrain.com' in the Server address field (if no protocol is specified, the default is https).


That worked. Thanks!
