I'd also like to have such an option. Out notebooks connect via OpenVPN client --> this is "like" an ethernet connection, with can not be declared as "metered". So I have no chance to disable endpoint backups over it.

Mybe a setting like "never run backups over those connections": xxxx can be implemented?

Being able to force an interface to be used or not used would solve a problem of mine. My backups are failing on one computer and It looks like its because at some point during the transaction it goes to the B&R repository reporting the correct IP but later in the process it identifies itself as the VPN address and the job fails.
