Hello musa11971,

Please login to your kiosk over SSH (enable it in the wizard first) and post here an output of following commands:
uname -a

Possible to change hostname of kiosk machine remoetly?

You can change the hostnames using remote config(s) and this parameter:

Code: Select all

hostname=
If you use a single config for all your kiosks then you need to enable nested configurations:

Firefox documents attachement

Please check if attaching files works ok in the stock ISO.

If yes then you will know that its your customization fault.

Adding IP Camera for video as Overlay on Half the Screen

This setup is not supported in default kiosk system.

Customization will be needed: VLC or second browser instance must play the video stream.

Shared Folder

Megafab,

There are no restrictions on the kiosk except the firewall so ensure you add extra iptables rules to unblock specific ports.

I believe you have made something wrong as samba sharing worked for me (I have made this customization for a paying customer).

Support for 802.1x wireless protocol in Porteus Kiosk?

Hello cdrake33,

Kiosk supports 802.1x EAP PEAP authentication.

EAP TLS is not supported as it requires valid certificate (if the cert expires then kiosk is bricked as there is no possibility to update the cert other than over the SSH).

Scanning

Hello Megafab,

1) Every folder is temporary in kiosk unless you enable persistence:
https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html#persistence

or customize the ISO.

2) Scanning application is not available in default kiosk ISO.
How do you scan documents then?

Thanks

'http_server=' parameter - SSL redirect?

Add 'sh' command to the init script before downloading the components and then you will get access to the shell during PXE boot and can debug downloading manually. You will also need to comment out one or two commands at the very beginning of the init script to re-enable cursor (cant remember which ...
