HTTPS Remote Management question

Post#1 by rh102801 » 16 Apr 2015, 13:55

1st of all I want to thank the developers for an awesome job. I am loving the remote management function, the fact that NTP was integrated in the wizard and all the hard work they put into the latest version.

I do have a question regarding the Remote management of the kiosks. I have setup an apache server, placed my config files there and pointed the kiosks to it. My question is regarding the use of HTTPS instead of HTTP. If I wanted to use HTTPS and allow access to the config files based on certificate based authentication, would I have to manually modify the ISO of the kiosk to install the certificate and then every time the certificate expired go through the same process or is there a way to push that certificate through a config file entry?

I would be interested in knowing how other users are making use of the remote management feature and specially how they are securing that connection.


Thanks

Hello,

I'm not running Porteus Kiosk myself but did you read the following:

If this does not answer your question please let us know.
I was born with nothing and I still got most of it.
