save confidential PDF-files

Post#1 by AW_eusport » 27 Apr 2017, 09:02

I am using Porteus-Kiosk with indiviual config in a VM for banking. Adobe Flash Player NPAPI plugin is installed in Firefox.
I need to save confidential PDF-files out of the browser to a disk, stick or flash card which resides inside the VM.
I have configured "enable_file_protocol=yes". I can access URL file:///media with a new tab in browser.
Devices are mounted as read-only for Kiosk! ... le_devices
How can I make it read-write?
Similar to cloud an thin-clients variants.

Hello AW,

USB sticks mounted with write access must be unmounted safely. This could be achieved with specific key combination for example.
Please use TC/Cloud variants or contact me through customized builds if want to have this function in standard kiosk.

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
