Access denied page not always pop

Post#1 by Debadr » 07 May 2015, 14:42

Hi all,

Using PKE 3.3.0 and managing the configuration file on my web server, i am using also a whitelist with all the websites that i want to access to, i also aded

Code: Select all

about:newtab
so if i open a new tab the "access denied message don't pop".
My probleme is when i want to test my whitelist sometimes the Access denied page shows off sometimes i have just a white page. If i wana go too google it says Acces denied btu if i want to go to youtube i have just a white page.
here is my configuration file :

Code: Select all

 
  1 connection=wired
  2 network_interface=eth0
  3 dhcp=yes
  4 proxy=19x.16x.13x.1x:3128

 13 enable_file_protocol=no
 14 disable_navigation_bar=no
 15 allow_popup_windows=no
 16 whitelist=about:blank about:newtab + some private websites.
 17 homepage=http://privatewebsite.com
 18 primary_keyboard_layout=fr

Hi Fanthom,

The Url's where the image does not work is always the youtube Url's: https://www.youtube.com/?gl=FR&hl=fr, https://www.youtube.com/, https://www.youtube.com/?hl=es&gl=ES and pretty much all URL's to the youtube website.

Just in case you think it's because of our private website, i can confirm you that none of them have "youtube" on the URL, not even "you" or "tube".

yes - i can confirm this.
website is blank so its good but image is not displayed. no solution so far.

the workaround would be to integrate some 3rd party addon with kiosk like Easy Whitelist:

Actually i am using both about:blank+newtab just in case ;) . No problem ! i am happy to help "even if its a micro help" on this wonderful solution !
It's ok for the youtube blank page :) The iptable is doing hes job so far by blocking the youtube with the blank page.

Do i mark solved ? or something else ?

Thank you Fanth for your support and help.
