ARC VPN Support for Crostini Landing in Next Release of ChromeOS

ARC VPN Support for Crostini Landing in Next Release of ChromeOS

The fact that it was not possible to route traffic on a Crostini container over a VPN has been one of the most annoying bugs for developers who wish to use their Chromebooks to work in a corporate environment. Google has been working on a fix since I reported it over a year ago. The community of Chromebook owners were saddened to report that the fix was pushed back to M76 about 2 weeks ago. It looks like Google is going to squeeze it into M75, specifically in build 12104.0.0 which may hit the developer channel any day now.

Edit : Its LIVE!!!

Aside from developers and remote workers, other users of Crostini will benefit from this change, especially if they commonly use a public internet connection, such as in a coffee shop to work. The use of a VPN significantly improves security, may provide better privacy and can get around some network restrictions.
