For ChromeOS devices to work on a domain with TLS inspection (also known as SSL inspection), some hostnames need to be exempt from inspection. This is because certificates can only be imported at the user level and are only honored for user-level traffic. Some device-level traffic doesn’t use the TLS or SSL certificate to protect users against certain kinds of security risks.
To ensure that ChromeOS devices work with TLS inspection or networks restricting external traffic, you need to allow the following hostnames on your proxy server. For details on how to allow hostnames, check with your web filter provider.

2 For accounts.google.[country], use your local top-level domain for [country]. For example, for Australia use accounts.google.com.au, and for United Kingdom use accounts.google.co.uk.
3If you're running ChromeOS version 62 and you're seeing the error "Network not available," you may need to allow the host alt*.gstatic.com through your firewall on port 80. If this doesn't resolve the issue, see this full list of hosts to allow.
