How To Get VyprVPN And OpenVPN Working On Chrome OS
Chrome OS allows you to add OpenVPN connections, but attempting to add an entry for VyprVPN using the instructions or settings for other operating systems compatible with OpenVPN results in Chrome OS either not connecting to VyprVPN, or appearing connected but unable to resolve DNS queries or access websites (IP addresses). Chrome OS is probably negotiated with the server, but may not be effectively communicating due to an issue with LZO compression not being enabled when adding a private network entry to Chrome OS via the GUI.
These instructions will get you set up for functional usage through another method.
Chrome OS can parse .ONC files when adding network configuration information, including for VPN services. ONC files are text files in the syntax of the Open Network Configuration Format. We will use a pre-made ONC file, of which you will edit only one or two lines, and then import it into Chrome OS. This will add the VPN entry. You will set up and finished after you connect the first time and input (and save) your credentials.
Here is the the text to be placed and saved in a plaintext file. I suggest saving it as:
Here is the pastebin: http://pastebin.com/9cLf4q4t
Edit the Host entry to point to the server you wish to use.
Edit the Name entry to whatever you want. I like VyprVPN as it is simple and short.
Luckily, even after you import the configuration file and get set up, you can always edit the server that the VPN entry points to at a later time through the GUI in Chrome OS.
Once you get this all edited and saved to a plaintext file, store it on Google Drive or a removable storage device. Get onto your Chrome OS device, and open the Chrome browser.
Download the following file:
Once saved, navigate to:
Select the Authorities tab. Click Import. Select the certificate file you saved moments ago; a new dialog box will appear. Do not check any of the boxes granting trust to the certificate... we are going to leave it as untrusted. It simply needs to be imported in order to be used. Click OK to close the Certificate Authority dialog box, and then click Done to close the Certificate Manager dialog box.
Reboot your Chrome OS device and then log in.
Open the Chrome browser and navigate to:
Click Choose File under Import ONC file. Select the ONC file you created earlier. Click OK and import it.
You're almost done.
You may now go to the usual Settings area to find the new private network entry for VyprVPN. Make the attempt to connect to it. You will be prompted for your credentials. Input them and decide if you want to have them saved or not by clicking the respective check box that is present. Click Connect.
You can edit the entry to change the server being used without having to re-make or re-import the ONC file again.
1. Your code of onc file has one typing mistkae around the port.
Your incorrect code: "Port":1194,
Correct code: "Port":1194,
The " is killing the next trier.
2. add the code below will make the onc file works better.
3. Other want to try it could modify the host and port to find the best server for you.
