Deploy the OpenVPN Client to a Chromebook

Downloading the Chromebook OpenVPN Client - 

This guide will show you how to import an OpenVPN client in to your Chromebook.

We are assuming the OpenVPN client already exists in this walk though,  If you are unsure on how to create a new OpenVPN client please see this link -

OpenVPN 

Please note the screenshots used in this guide were generated using a Samsung XE303C12, your Chromebook may not line up exactly with these screenshots

 

We first download the client from the OpenVPN Interface 

You will want to select the download for Chromebook from this page.

 

Now that we have the file we suggest sharing the file via Google drive with the user that will be using the OpenVPN client 

 Importing the OpenVPN Client - 

On the target device, browse to chrome://net-internals#chromeos and use Import ONC file.  If your drop down menu does not match the screenshot please select the ChromeOS option from the drop down.  **The appliance should see the file in the users google drive that you shared it with**  

 Once you have done this click on your profile icon in the very bottom right hand corner.

 

Then click on 'VPN disconnected' and then click on the OpenVPN connection that should appear in this section.  The Password field needs to be populated before connecting.  Since Untangle uses certificates instead of passwords for OpenVPN connections, what gets entered into the Password field is irrelevant.  Just enter anything then click the Connect button

 

You should now be connected to the Untangle NG Firewall and should be able to access the local resources on the network.
