    I can't add the port to the proxy server. Only allows me to do my ip. Is there a tutorial on setting up a proxy?

    Make sure the conntest.nintendowifi.net rule box is checked.

    unchecked means it will allow the Switch normal internet access (updates,eShop, etc) whereas checking the box makes the test fail and pops open the web browser to accept the web portal agreement (which is actually google.com) then you can browse the web using that web browser.

    if that does not work, make sure the Switch iself has the proxy server info entered into it.

    I updated the files for the BrowseAnywhere method. I added rules to block updates and phoning home. This fixes the update message that blocks the web browser from opening. This also fixes the eShop update message and allows eShop usage on older firmwares (this requires turning the conntest.nintendowifi.net rule off so the web browser does not open up)

    I am not updating the Charles rules or the YouTube Fiddler rules as the Fiddler BrowseAnywhere method is the recommended method and I will only support that method.

    If you want to add the rules to Fiddler or Charles yourself, block these URLs
    Code:
    http://beach.hac.lp1.eshop.nintendo.net:443
    http://sun.hac.lp1.d4c.nintendo.net:443
    http://receive-lp1.dg.srv.nintendo.net:443
    http://receive-lp1.er.srv.nintendo.net:443
    Sorry if it took so long, I have not used my Switch in a while and had no idea a forced update check was enabled for the WiFi portal page and the eShop.

    Try turning off one rule at a time and see if it fixes online play. I would start with turning off the 2 receive ones as those are the phone home addresses and should still block updates.

    Hey, just tried using Fiddle, and got it running well... apparently (I can see logs in Fiddle).

    But whenever I hit "Company Info" I get the message "This page cannot be displayed" with a button to "Return to previous page". I'm using the "YouTubeSwitchFiddler" settings file in Fiddle, but I also imported both files (the Youtube one and "Fiddler_BrowseAnywhere") and got the same result. The interesting part is that I see Fiddle tunneling www.nintendo.com/corp to m.youtube.com.

    I also tried ProxSwitch, with which I can access the Youtube page, but nothing loads (no thumbs and no video, but I can browse channels and videos).

    I just realized that my switch is updated to the latest version, 2.3.0. Is this the possible cause for the Youtube page not loading properly, or may I be missing something?

    The browse anywhere method will prompt for a portal login when you do a connection test. That will open google or the the other site instead of a login page.

    This worked flawlessly for about a month but now not so much. I am on 2.1.0 and I have updated the rules to the latest addition yet it still won't work. I have quad checked both of the respective settings and I see nothing wrong with either. And lastly dns browser works so I am lost.

    oh, so this is somewhat system version dependant, see, I'm on the latest so likely not much I can do there

    It doesn't work for me on 3.0. My connection doesn't failed if I set my IP adress and the port of the proxy correctly. Dont know what to do now
