FEATURE open with a few taps. To do that, jump into your Linux chroot on your Chromebook, open a terminal and type in the following: echo “alias steamStream=’ sudo iptables -A INPUT -p udp – dport 27036 -j ACCEPT; sudo iptables -A INPUT -p udp – dport 37804 -j ACCEPT; sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp – dport 37804 -j ACCEPT; sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp – dport 27036 -j ACCEPT; sudo iptables -I INPUT -p udp – dport 27031 -j ACCEPT; sudo iptables -I INPUT -p udp – dport 27036 -j ACCEPT; sudo iptables -I INPUT -p tcp – dport 27036 -j ACCEPT; sudo iptables -I INPUT -p tcp – dport 27037 -j ACCEPT;’” >> ~/.bash_aliases Now every time you want to open your ports, fire up the terminal in Linux, type steamStream into the command prompt, hit Enter, then start Steam, and you should see a Stream option next to any games installed on your Windows gaming rig. If you forget to run your alias before opening Steam, you’ll have to relaunch the program to see the streaming option. 2. Chrome Remote Desktop We’ve covered this before, but it’s hard to beat Google’s Chrome Remote Desktop for getting free access to your primary PC when you’re on a Chromebook.

Then press Get started under My computers, and follow the instructions. As part of the initial setup process you’ll need to install Chrome’s Remote Desktop Host controller and set a PIN.
