Freedom and K9 can work together nicely, just follow these steps.

On your Mac, open up System Preferences -> Network -> Advanced -> Proxies.  Add *.bluecoat.com to the "Bypass proxy settings for these hosts & domains." field.  Then press OK, and then Apply.  You may need to restart your computer if K9 has been complaining.

  • Windows 10: Settings -> Network & Internet -> Proxy -> Advanced

  • Windows 7 and XP: Internet Options -> Configure Proxy Server -> LAN Settings -> Proxy Settings -> Advanced
