SonicWALL Mobile Connect on Chromebooks

SonicWALL Mobile Connect on Chromebooks

SonicWALL Mobile Connect on Chromebooks

Hello All,

We recently picked up 15 Chromebooks from our good friends at Dell. My plan is to use our Google Apps domain to force install a number of apps on the Chromebooks through their managed policy. One of these apps is the SonicWALL Mobile Connect client. I would love to be able to include a pre-configured connection but, have been unable to figure out what type of file the app is looking for. Dell is unwilling to support this as it is a free client and we're connecting it to an end-of-life appliance.

Has anyone worked with the MC client and knows what sort of file the app might use?

Thank you.

RE: SonicWALL Mobile Connect on Chromebooks


Do you have confirmation that the Mobile Connect app supports uploading a config file?

Here is a link that sheds some light on the configure section: Manage Individual apps

Below is the relevant section.



Uploads a configuration file to install customized policies and settings supported by the app (only available if the app supports a configuration file).

See Configure a Chrome App for more information about configuring Chrome Apps. Or, see Configuring Apps and Extensions by Policy to learn how to configure policies using APIs.

It looks like whether or not you can upload a config file is determined by the app itself. I would not be surprised to learn that Mobile Connect does not allow that type of configuration.

This link talks about configuring apps and extensions by policies. It may be of some use to you.
