Below are the following possibilities tried:
1.Using desired capabilities.        
        DesiredCapabilities desiredCapabilities =;
        desiredCapabilities.setCapability("", Arrays.asList("--whitelisted-ips=''"));

2.Using Chromedriver service
       ChromeDriverService service =new ChromeDriverService.Builder().withWhitelistedIps("").withVerbose(true).build();

3.Using chrome options

       ChromeOptions chromeOptions = new ChromeOptions();

driver=new ChromeDriver(desiredCapabilities/service/chromeOptions);

For all above types,it still says 

Starting ChromeDriver 2.29.461591 (62ebf098771772160f391d75e589dc567915b233) on port 11109
Only local connections are allowed.

It looks like you have not set network proxy. You need to set network proxy and define IP and the Port as given below.

capabilities.setCapability("network.proxy.http", "IP here");
capabilities.setCapability("network.proxy.http_port", "Port here");

Also, I do not see chromedriver.exe path mentioned.
