Always-On VPN with Google Device Management


You can configure Chromebook devices to automatically connect to NG Firewall OpenVPN or IPsec VPN server. This enables the administrator to force Internet traffic through NG Firewall to maintain safe Internet browsing for students or remote employees.

Configuring VPN settings

Google provides details on this configuration in Set up networks for managed devices (Wi-Fi, Ethernet, VPN).

See IPsec VPN and OpenVPN documentation in the NG Firewall wiki for configuration details of the VPN server.

Note: You must also install the root certificate to provide full HTTPS content filtering. These steps are provided within the same Google documentation referenced above.

Here is an example of a configuration via Google Admin Console.
