[solved] host file not accepted

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

[solved] host file not accepted

Post#1 by tobiash » 03 Dec 2014, 21:06

Hello,
I edited the 003-settings.xzm file, meaning I created the hosts file within /etc (which doesn't exist yet).
This is needed because I want to prevent users from accessing certain URL.
After that I ran the make_iso.sh file and tested the new ISO file within VirtualBox.
Unfortunately, the hosts-file doesn't seem to have been implemented.
I tried to SSH but the connection was refused.
So what did I miss? My purpose is to block certain URL, and I thought that the easiest way would be by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 within the hosts-file.
Thank you very much.
