    We haven't tested CloudShare on Chromebook OS laptops yet and the RDP browser plugin would not work as the remote access plugin requires a Microsoft Operating system.  However as the Chrome browser is HTML5 compatible, you should be able connect through the browser itself. 

     

    If the Chromebook OS supports Java you should be able to use our Console access browser plugin.  You should also be able to connect directly to your VMs with any RDP client if you find one available for Chromebook OS. 

     

    Or you can install a VNC server or other tools such as LogMeIn on your VM and use the respective clients to access your machines in your CloudShare environment using the External Address shown below.

    If anyone has actually done this please shout out as I'm considering a Chromebook for the family use and light-weight travel. Would be good to know how convenient it is for "serious" tasks like VM connections.
