Install the GlobalProtect App from the Chrome Web Store

You can install the GlobalProtect app on a Chromebook by downloading the app from the Chrome Web Store. As an alternative, you can Deploy the GlobalProtect App Using the Chromebook Management Console.
  1. Create an agent configuration for testing the app installation.
    As a best practice, create an agent configuration that is limited to a small group of users, such as administrators in the IT department who are responsible for administering the firewall.
    1. Select
      Network
      GlobalProtect
      Portals
    2. Select an existing portal configuration or
      Add
      a new one.
    3. On the
      Agent
      tab, select an existing agent configuration or
      Add
      a new one to deploy to the test users/group.
    4. On the
      User/User Group
      tab,
      Add
      the
      User/User Group
      that will test the app.
    5. Select the
      OS
      you are testing (in this example, select
      Chrome
      ), and then click
      OK
      .
    6. (
      Optional
      ) On the
      Agent
      tab, select the agent configuration that you just created or modified, and then click
      Move Up
      so that it is higher in the list than the more generic configurations you have created.
    7. Click
      OK
      , and then
      Commit
      the changes.
  2. Install the GlobalProtect app for Chrome OS.
    You can also force-install the app on managed Chromebooks using the Chromebook Management Console. See Deploy the GlobalProtect App Using the Chromebook Management Console.
    1. From your Chromebook, search for the app in the Chrome Web Store or go directly to the GlobalProtect app page.
    2. Click
      Add to Chrome
      , and then follow the prompts to download and install the app.
  3. Launch the app.
    After the GlobalProtect app is installed successfully, the Chrome App Launcher displays the GlobalProtect app icon in the list of apps
    .
    Click the icon to launch the app.
  4. Configure the portal.
    1. When prompted, enter the IP address or FQDN of the
      Portal
      . The portal address should not include the

    2. Click
      Add Connection
