ChromeOS and Google Authenticator with OpenVPN for Android

Post by deliverator » Fri Jul 12, 2019 2:24 am

Hi all,

Has anyone enjoyed success, and is willing to share how they solved the following:

Workplace requires remote workers to VPN into their bastion network, and uses OpenVPN with user locked profiles. Work also requires a token generated by Google Authenticator for 2FA.

I installed the OpenVPN Android app on my Acer Chromebook, and was able to successfully import my work-provided OpenVPN user profile into the app. The app successfully connects, but does NOT prompt for the 2FA token and closes the session immediately. I never see a window or input field where I can type in the Google Authenticator token.

OpenVPN support says their Android app was never tested for use on ChromeOS, and can't offer a more useful suggestion.

Here's the snip of an example OpenVPN log where the session quits after asking for the 2FA token, without actually prompting for the token in the UI.

Anyone spare me a clue?

Hi,

Were you able to find a solution to this? Seems like a miss that there isn't an app for it.

Thanks,
