Hi everyone. Given the nature of this problem I’m trying to solve, I couldn’t think of a better group of people to ask than MacPowerUser listeners.
At work I have my MacBook Air (running Ventura) connected to both ethernet and wifi networks. The ethernet is required for access to certain work applications, and needs to be given sort order priority between the two networks for me to access those applications.
My issue is that the ethernet network has fairly aggressive website filtering in place, meaning that access is blocked to a variety of applications/websites, but in particular Discord and Mastadon (but oddly not Slack or Twitter). The wifi network I have access to is more permissive and does allow access to these sites and services.
I have tried to search (in vain) for a way to tell my computer to use the ethernet for the work applications (and then move the wifi network to the higher sort order), or to have my Mac use the wifi for those services that would otherwise be blocked. I found some older items online, but when they started going through network tables in terminal I got a little hesitant.
One important thing to note is that I can’t control anything about either network itself. Any tweaking has to be on my device only.
Thanks for any help you can provide, and let me know if I’m missing any information you need to give me some direction.
