After many repeated requests from Business and individuals that VPN is definitely needed in Chromebook. Google has finally  launched the support for VPN on Chromebook. Although currently Chromebook only supports, L2TP/IPSec with Pre Shared Key (PSK).

PPTP, SSL/OpenVPN and L2TP/IPSec over Cisco and other Cisco Proprietary VPN implementations are still not supported but Google promises in Chromebook Support FAQs that they will soon launch complete Chromebook VPN Support.

In Chromebook FAQs, it is mentioned,Chromebook VPN

“We’ve heard from our pilot customers that Chromebook VPN is an important feature for businesses and schools, and we’re working very hard to bake this into Chromebooks soon. Support for some Chromebook VPN implementation is already in the product and we’ll both extend support for more VPNs and get these features to stable soon. Remember that unlike ordinary computers Chromebooks get better through seamless auto-updates every few weeks. Stay tuned!”

Good news as I told you above is that, we have something on table to secure the remote access and communication of  our Chromebook. SO here you go with the step by step guide to L2TP/IPSec Chromebook VPN Connection.

Step 1: Locate the network icon in the extreme top right hand corner of the screen. (icon will be like signals)

Step 2: You will see a list opened up, locate ‘Add Private Network’ and click on it add private network.

Step 3: A box with a basic form of L2TP/IPSec connection will appear, it will be similar to iPad and iPhone one, if you have used L2TP/IPSec on iPad and iPhone. Fill in the fields as follows,

  • Server Hostname: This will be provided to you by your VPN provider, it will be the server address basically that you want to connect to, e.g. vpn.bestvpnservice.com  or it may be (Do not use the examples in your server hostname, they won’t work, these are just examples, you will have to ask your provider specifically for their L2TP/IPSec support server hostname)
  • Service Name: Name it whatever you want, e.g. VPN, My VPN, VPN 1, Mark, Security or anything, it really does not matter what do you name it, just make sure you name it unique, so that in future if you add any new VPN Services, the names can easily be differentiated.
  • Pre-Shared Key (PSK): This key would also be provided to you by your VPN Service provider or network admin who had set-up dedicated VPN Service for you or organization. Ask for the key from your VPN Provider or network admin and enter. This is not your password.
  • Username: Enter VPN username that is provided by your VPN Service Provider
  • Password: Enter VPN password that is provided by your VPN Service Provider

All done. Click on Connect to get your VPN Service working. L2TP/IPSec VPN is better than PPTP VPN Protocol as it is more secure and gives you better encryption. VPN on Chromebook will not only save your Chromebook from unwanted remote access, hacks but will also protect your Wi-Fi and hotspot connections. It will definitely ad to the acceptance of Chromebook in to more security seeking, privacy seeking and enterprise/business market.

    Unfortunately still is not working!

    If you are considering Chromebooks but don’t want to leave your Windows apps behind, you should look at Ericom AccessNow, a pure HTML5 RDP client that enables Chromebook users to connect to any RDP host, including Terminal Server (RDS Session Host), physical desktops or VDI virtual desktops – and run their applications and desktops in a browser.

    As an extra benefit, Ericom AccessNow also provides an optional Secure Gateway component. This Gateway enables external clients to securely connect to internal resources using AccessNow without requiring a VPN.

    Ericom‘s AccessNow does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight, ActiveX, or any other underlying technology to be installed on end-user devices – an HTML5 browser is all that is required.
