PAC files that requires authentication

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.

PAC files that requires authentication

Post#1 by bma619 » 28 Jul 2015, 21:29

Hi all,

I'm having a bit of trouble setting up proxy provided by z-scaler (https://www.zscaler.com/) was hoping to find some help.

Because I can't authenticate with the service before the wizard downloads the browsers, I am unable to move forward to the next steps of the installation.

Does anyone know of a way to put the pac file location in after browsers are installed or is there a way to have the browsers installed offline rather than online?

Anything help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all

@bma619
I have updated 3.4.0 ISO recently so you can include all standalone components in (browsers, all modules, uefi.zip, initrd.xz) the /xzm folder and during installation the items which were not selected in the wizard will be dumped. You can download them from here:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/public/3.4/

if your proxy pac requires authentication then i'm worrying that installation still wont move forward as wizard has to be downloaded from kiosk server (you cant include it in the ISO).
i will try to find out how to handle proxy pac with authentication.

after quick digging - i dont think its possible to use proxy pac with authentication unless you setup local proxy server in kiosk as described here:

let us know if you succeeded
