Chrome OS is an operating system based on the Linux kernel and designed to work with web applications and installed applications. Initially, Chrome OS was almost a pure web thin client operating system, with only a handful of "native" applications, but Google gradually began encouraging developers to create "packaged applications", some of which can work offline. App Runtime for Chrome (beta) enables Android applications to run on Chrome OS. Chrome OS is built upon the open source project called Chromium OS which, unlike Chrome OS, can be compiled from the downloaded source code; Chrome OS is the commercial version installed on specific hardware.

I've recently been tasked with setting up OpenVPN on a Chromebook (as an alternative work option for Windows and Mac Users).

I'm new to Chromebook's OS, but did manage to get a VM running for testing purposes.

Does anyone know of a Client I can use for OpenVPN Access Server?

Thanks

How to get Google Chrome to behave like IE when it comes to single sign on and ASP.NET applications. We use SSO for our internal applications (VB.NET)  and works great when using IE  however, we have users who prefer Chrome. Is there a way to get Chrome to behave like IE.  

Has anyone got this to work?

Thanks

Starting yesterday evening, I'm frequently seeing the following message. Seems to occur when opening/working with Chrome.

Google msg (1 of 2)
When I click to show details, i see:

Google msg (2 of 2)
These msgs persist even after restarting.

How can I tell if this thing is a legitimate Google update, or a virus/malware?
How can I turn off this notification?

Additional info. (May or may not be relevant):
1. My machine restarted overnight without my asking for a reboot.
2. When I first stated up this morning, I saw a msg that my snipping tool was not functional....including something about contacting my system administrator. That issue resolved on its own.
3. While not actively working in Chrome, I saw it (on its own) navigate to my default page (page that comes up when I start it. Not sure if this behavior was a delayed start, or something else.

Thanks.

Hi

we have a number of chromebooks that need access to chrome admin for initial configuration. During initial config we deploy wifi settings and certificates. But the initial config needs to be access through an open or easily accessible network, preferably with destionation limitations,
so which URLs and which ports need to be opened? cannot find anything online

I'm setting up 20 Chromebooks for a small private school and it's a first with Chromebooks and the chromebook management software for me.  What I'm trying to figure out is this...
They thought about assigning one Chromebook to 3 students but the other option (easier) is to allow any student to log into any of the Chromebooks.  The problem is I'm concerned the 16 gig drive will fill up if people start keeping things in the downloads folder and/or if user settings are stored locally.  Is there a way to keep this from happening?  Each student will have there own login credentials and google drives under the GAFE account.

We want to utilized the Monitoring and Reports options that is available through the management software. But, I also see that I can't enable the option "Erase all local user info, settings, and state after each sign-out" otherwise the logging won't work and this where I'm stuck.  Not sure how to get around not being able to use the Erase all local user info at log off option yet not have to worry about the drives filling up if a bunch of students log into the same Chromebook.

I started looking at how the "sync user settings and data" option works but I'm still unclear as to the best option for this sinario.  

Thank You!

Hi,

When I try to login to to Google on my PC using ANY of the latest browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera etc) I am able to enter my username but when I press the "NEXT" button nothing happens.  I added a screenshot of the page that I am stuck on here:  http://i.imgur.com/zMpNrFM.jpg and the link I am stuck on is below.    The link that i am stuck on is https://accounts.google.com/signin/v2/identifier?hl=en&%3B&flowName=GlifWebSignIn&flowEntry=ServiceLogin

If I use an old Safari browser that is unsupported or I add a Script Blocker to one of the new browsers (like NoScrip) then I get the old Google V1 Login page and I can login with no problems. See image: http://i.imgur.com/A9YlIYy.jpg

Can someone help me figure out how to fix this issue?

Sincerely,

David S.

I have the DCS-932L-B1 camera and I downloaded the mydlink lite app on my cell phone. I did all the steps to connect to my wifi, including pushing the WPS button as well as plugging the ethernet cord into the wifi adaptor and it keeps telling me it cannot connect. Also, I have a chromebook for a computer and I cannot download the setup wizard that i keep getting referred to do. What else could I try to do to connect to my wifi?
Thanks!

I am trying to access one of the website from our client computers. On some computers i am getting the error 'This site can't be reached' 'Err_connection-refused'. Please find below points for your reference,

1. This web site is working fine in internet explorer. However sometimes it will not load and it will be working again after resetting the IE settings. Where as in chrome it never works and either reset of chrome doesn't make any changes.
2. I have already updated the chrome to latest version and tried to reinstall.
3. Uninstalled antivirus and disabled windows firewall.
4. This website is working on some clients in chrome without any challenges but the same website is not working on computer beside that on chrome.
5. Cleared the browsing history and cache of chrome.
6. Resetted my IP address cleared the DNS cache as per below,
netsh winsock reset catalog then press enter.
ipconfig /flushdns then press enter.
7. Used Chrome Cleanup Tool and check for any errors and nothing found.

FYI: Sometimes the webpage will not work on IE also with the error 'page cannot be displayed' however the same will be fine if i reset IE settings.
Please note that in some computers it is working fine in IE and chrome which is located beside the affected user.

Please note that we are using Forefront 2010 proxy and its website is already allowed on proxy(as mentioned working on all clients with IE and on most of the clients its not working in chrome).

Is there any other …

We are looking to configure our Cisco Secure ACS (Radius) to work with our Chromebooks. Our goal is to have the user not have to type in a password when authenticating. The Chrome console side seems straight forward and have those settings mapped out. IT's the Cisco Secure ACS side that's the issue.

Any help with the Cisco ACS side would be great. Already have a TAC open with Cisco but it's been a few days with no real progress.

Windows 7, Chrome, Gmail
Although the settings are configured for "Show all images", images from one sender (who would be fine as a trusted sender if gmail had that) will not show up.
Every time, I must select "Display images below".  Now, I know you are going to say, simply select "Always display images from this sender", but that is the problem!  This sender does not have that option available.  See Image attached.

What settings change can I make to make this senders images always work like the rest of the senders.

I have checked this on multiple PC's and multiple browsers (FireFox, Chrome, IE) and the issue is the same.  I can log in as a different user and look at the same email and the images does display!  So it must be something in the settings of the gmail user - not a PC issue or a browser issue.

Thanks

Happy Friday to all the experts out there.

We have a strange issue with a clients PC running google chrome. Every time they select the settings option chrome crashes... We have tried reinstalling Chrome with different versions, trying different profiles, clearing the cache, running revo cleaner but we are still getting the same issue every time. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Hi I just want some expert to confirm one concept. Regarding inbound traffic in BGP, does it mean inbound routes flow  or inbound data flow? I know the two concept move just in opposite direction.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

This a Windows 7 machine, fully patched with Office 2013. When the user click to close only one open tab in Google Chrome all other tabs closes as well. I have cleaned the PC of all malware  and a full scan with Norton shows no infection. I have also removed CCleaner, stopped and disabled Windows Defender service. I have run a Windows file system check but didn't find any error. If Internet Explorer (11) is used the user does not report that problem. Could any of you please give me some light on how to fix this issueis ?

-IE and Firefox work.
-Disabled all Antivirus, page will sometimes work but mostly not.
-First time you open Chrome from a reboot page works. Close chrome and open back up. Same site is blank.
-Disabled all Extensions in chrome.
