Changing homepage

I am enabling remote management. I want to locate my config-files to Porteus server. I am wondering how to and where to save them on server.

Changing homepage & setting up remote mgmnt (solved)

I can change kioskmachines homepage from VNC/server, but after kioskmachine reboot it changes back to original.
How can I change it without making new kiosk machine? I guess I must somehow edit kiosk-config file on kioskmachine, but how?
