OpenVPN for Android
Android apps on Chrome OS
Chromebooks that support Android apps
Enable Google Play Store on Chrome OS
If you can’t use Android apps, you can try the Cisco AnyConnect extension with your Odin account. Most MCECS services are available through the AnyConnect VPN. After adding vpn.pdx.edu, click the status area in the lower-right corner and click VPN disconnected. Select vpn.pdx.edu and login.
If you use Android private DNS and can’t load webpages when you’re on the VPN, try turning private DNS off.
1. Download The CAT’s OpenVPN configuration files:
The Full Tunnel will send all of your network communication, e.g. going to google.com, through MCECS.
