Allow websites through (Personal Firewall)

Jump to solution

I would like to watch videos through Hulu without turning off the VPN. How would I go about adding an exception or a specific URL and port through my McAfee Total Protection VPN?

I receive an error that I am using an anonymous proxy or VPN when I attempt to watch any video or program over Hulu.

I followed the instructions as outlined and performed the two restarts of my Windows 10, Update 1909 install.  I tested going to Hulu.  I am able to log onto the site with no issues, I can choose the user, me. I then attempt to watch a show and I am presented with a screen in the link below from my Google Drive.
