Vpn Access to selected apps in Android 4.x

Post by pravin27 » Mon Oct 17, 2016 3:24 am

Is their any way to block network access of certain apps by not forwarding the packets to the vpn server? I wanted to allow access to only few apps and apps which are not in the list should not have access to the network. Is it possible? Its much like how NetGuard works.

Basically we are looking for a solution described in the following thread,
https://github.com/schwabe/ics-openvpn/issues/418

But without the UI.

Thanks for the reply. I already talked to him and he has removed the integration. Can you please give me a pointer where to start?

I have configured ics-openvpn on my machine with openvpn.
Openvpn code is huge and I am not able to understand where to make the change to block packets from the blocked apps.
