[Solved] Porteus Kiosk Edition connect via RDP/VNC/SSH

Post#1 by Linus123 » 13 Sep 2019, 07:07

Hello,

is it possible to connect to a Kiosk installation via RDP, VNC or SSH with X11 forwarding ?
In Desktop edition there is a package manager (usm) where you can install additional packages like freerdp. Is this also possible for kiosk edition ?


Sincerely,
Linus

Hello Linus123,

VNC and SSH connections are possible:
https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.ht ... x11vnc.xzm
https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.ht ... 08-ssh.xzm

You enable and configure them in the first run wizard.

Thanks

Thank you fanthom!

I tested it and VNC works, but unfortunately is not suitable for my use case.
I need a kiosk system with multi-user functionality. Means several users should be able to connect to the browser at the same time. Everybody needs to have their own session.

Thanks,
Linus
