I have installed v3.7.0 on a 32bit laptop to demonstrate porteus-kiosk to our church. Every website is blocked by administrator. I tried both Firefox and Chrome with the same results. Please advise.

Hello krodo57,

Perhaps you have used 'whitelist=' parameter incorrectly? Please send your kiosk config to support@porteus-kiosk.org

Thanks

Fathom, I have tried several configs to test the options since I'm new to porteus-kiosk. Even porteus-kiosk.org is blocked. Here is the latest one:

connection=wifi
network_interface=wlan0
dhcp=yes
wifi_encryption=wpa
ssid_name=ZOOM
wpa_password=zoom4BE4
browser=firefox
enable_dpms=yes
homepage=http://porteus-kiosk.org
allow_icmp_protocol=yes
primary_keyboard_layout=us
disable_navigation_bar=yes
screensaver_idle=5
shutdown_combination=yes
timezone=US/Arizona
wallpaper=http://porteus-kiosk.org/public/wallpapers/sample.jpg
whitelist=https://pushpay.com/pay/deserthillsbaptist

thanks in advance for your help.

Resolved Webpage Blocked

Sorry Fanthom for misspelling your name. OK, it looks like whitelist is not working for me. I reconfigured to use the default home page and that opened in the browser. So I reconfigured again using the whitelist url for the home page and that connected as well.

Does that mean the issue is resolved?

I would like to find out why whitelist is not working, but since we're using only 1 url I am putting it in the homepage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I really dont know where the issue is.

Please try these parameters in your config:
homepage=http://porteus-kiosk.org
disable_navigation_bar=no
whitelist=porteus-kiosk.org

As you can see only porteus-kiosk.org (and subpages) are allowed. If you try to open google.com or any other webpage then you'll get access denied picture.
It should work the same for your website.

BTW: setting up the homepage to porteus-kiosk.org and whitelisting something else (like in your config posted above) will produce 'access denied' picture.

Thanks

OK, so I mirrored the homepage and whitelist url for the pushpay site and that worked.
