I have a Sonicwall firewall and have the setting for Automatic Proxy Forwarding (Web Only) ticked so that all web browsing is redirected to an external filtering service.

I have a web site that dosen't work with the filtering service, is there any way to bypass the proxy just for this one site?

If there is CFC, may want to check out allowed domain

i dont think it is straightforward or feasible to worth the effort to workard. If you see this EE link, eventually to no avail based on FW - I did not delve further but thought not worth effort time...

then again there is "Forward DMZ Client Requests to Proxy Server " that allows clients on the DMZ to be forwarded to a proxy server defined on the SonicWALL, which I see as possible to route other place but not to that proxy used by all others. Too many implication and tedious ...maybe it is easier to up the box to have really the CFC to create the exception

The proxy setting is still best controlled at endpoint for enforcement centrally. If endpoint used a 3G dongle, this maybe easily bypass your FW :)
