This page will guide you through to set up our Smart DNS service, MyTelly on Chromebooks (Chrome OS) or devices that are running on Chromium OS.


Please note that whilst the instructions below were done on Neverware CloudReady build and tested successfully both on this and ArnoldTheBat version, the instructions might differ compared to other Chromium OS builds.


Note: Chromium OS shares the same foundation as Chrome OS (found in Chromebook), with an exception of a few added features that's found only in Chrome OS, which is officially maintained by Google.
