comment Arbitrary loopback ip addresses besides 127.0.0.1
+1, good to know fact. However, I tried 127.0.0.5 with my browser and I get (111) Connection refused error. So, I guess I should try the method @Sam suggests.

@ John Gardeniers - Thanks, yes. Ekevoo's solution is using cookies too ;)

comment Reasonable assumption about an ISP's IP range
Interesting solution. The problem though is that I use a wide array of browsers (to ensure cross-browser compatibility) and it would be hard to change ua on all - besides, some are so dumb they'd not give way easily (clue: think ie!).

Thanks, I have tried that. As you say this should be no secrete, but they don't think so.

comment Barring connections if VPN is down
Maybe I'm not explaining it clearly. I have a DSL connection which connects me to my ISP. I also have a VPN connection which uses the DSL connection and creates a tunnel to the VPN server and from there to the destination host. So, when the VPN connection is active my request to abc.com (1) is encrypted (2) is sent to server.at.vpn.ip. (3) is decrypted and sent to abc.com. The response would take the same route from the opposite direction. But when VPN connection dies, I am still connected through my DSL and the request will be sent in plain text (with the cookies). Makes sense?

I don't have a local network. It is a single desktop computer connecting to the Internet with a DSL router/modem. There are modems which could be set to handle VPN connection internally (end-point VPN support), however mine only supports VPN as a pass-through device, so the VPN connection is formed on the same machine that I'm using.

Thank you poke. Connection failing when there is no VPN is what I want to achieve, so it is the objective, not a side-effect. I have to ask for further help as I have no clue where I add this route; is it something I need to do in my firewall, or router, or ... where? ... and how? ;)

comment Barring connections if VPN is down
I have no control over the services I connect to (e.g. Facebook), and actually the problem is two-folds, these services are also filtered by the government, so I cannot use them without a VPN. So when the VPN connection is dropped, the requests my browser sends do not get through to the destination, but end-up in the routers of the filtering org. Facebook per se is not an issue, but there are others which are.
