As a frequent user of ChatGPT, especially when connected to a VPN in the U.S., I’ve often faced the frustrating error: “Unable to load site.” This is a common issue for VPN users, leading to restricted access and disrupted service. To combat this, I developed a Python script, which I’ve shared on my GitHub repository, “The Art of Lazying.” This script is designed to differentiate ChatGPT traffic from other internet traffic, ensuring a smoother online experience.
The VPN Challenge
Using a VPN can lead to access issues with ChatGPT, displaying errors like “Unable to load site” or advising to turn off the VPN. These problems often occur due to the rerouting nature of VPNs, which can interfere with how certain services, like ChatGPT, operate.
My Python Script to the Rescue
To tackle this, I wrote a Python script, available in my GitHub repository. The script effectively lists out domains and IP addresses related to ChatGPT, separating them from your general internet traffic. This categorization is crucial for pinpointing which traffic to route through the VPN and which to exclude.
Script in Action
When executed, the script fetches a comprehensive list of domains such as
ios.chat.openai.com, and many more, along with their respective IP addresses. This detailed mapping allows users to configure their VPN settings to specifically handle or bypass ChatGPT traffic.
The Advantage: Uninterrupted ChatGPT Access
With this script, VPN users can avoid the common loading errors associated with ChatGPT. It offers a tailored solution, enabling the benefits of VPN security and privacy while ensuring seamless access to ChatGPT.
This Python script bridges the gap between secure VPN usage and uninterrupted ChatGPT access. By intelligently managing network traffic, it aligns with the ethos of “The Art of Lazying” — simplifying complex challenges. For those looking to enhance their ChatGPT experience while using a VPN, this script provides a practical and user-friendly solution.
