Re: Kiosk can't reach .local domain (mDNS, avahi-daemon)

Also, make sure when you name your kiosk, you append .local to the name. Fore example: kiosk.domain.local

Re: Change default page for Firefox in Porteus-Kiosk

@Moakes : It's the PKE edition, since it is secured by concept, you can't access to the firefox/iceweasle... configuration. (tested myself by adding about:config on white-list and did not work). Sorry I left out a couple steps: Extract the settings xzm as fatham mentioned. Navigate to /003-settings...

Re: Cannot access intranet (Sharepoint) site

Was not able to get this resolved, unfortunately. The ntlm-v1 line was already in the prefs file. I added the other non-fqdn line to it and still nothing. Loads a "server not found" page.

Re: Cannot access intranet (Sharepoint) site

I seem to have made progress on this. It has something to do with NTLM/Single sign on. On my Windows machine, in Firefox, when I enable network.automatic.ntlm.auth.allow-non-fqdn the website loads without prompting for username/password. Is the stuff in about:config able to be copied to the custom i...

Cannot access intranet (Sharepoint) site

When I type in our intranet Sharepoint website into Firefox (http://somesite/) it loads to a blank page. This is using Porteus 3.2 in a VirutalBox VM. When I access from my Windows machine using Firefox, I am prompted with a login box. I am wondering if this is a DNS issue. Sharepoint is located at ...

FAA ISO Customizations Help

So I was able to create a Oracle Java .xzm package thanks to Slaxmax's guide. Tested it in my VM running Porteus and it successfully loads our Java based website. I think we will have an issue with Porteus Kiosk when people load the website though. I am guessing a reset of the kiosk will lose the pr...

Re: Porteus Kiosk - central management made easy

We will be one of the first to sign up :Yahoo!:

It would be great to be able to:

Add packages remotely.
Control white/black lists.
Configure printer settings.
Control the machine via VNC. (HUGE in own environment)
Transfer files to kiosk.
Enable/disable ports.

Hello, I have tried burning both images (UEFI and non-UEFI) to disc and also copying to USB via Win32 Disk Imager. Porteus will start to load, get to a screen that states "copying kiosk data to RAM". It goes from 5 modules all the way down to 1 and then the screen goes blank. I have let it sit for a...
