change wifi details on boot

Post#1 by Jong » 11 Jun 2015, 11:21


Firstly thank you to the dev team of this extremely useful software!

The question that I have is that I want to distribute a series of USB flash drives loaded with this software, for provisioning access to a secure web based application. These will be used in locations where we do not know the wifi details, can the wifi connection wizard be launched on boot to allow a user to enter the password etc for their WiFi ?

Thanks in advance

i understand that you need to configure the kioks by yourself (using kiosk wizard) and then allow users to update wifi details only?
it wont be easy to achieve this by yourself as you need persistence in kiosk (to save wifi data).

I have done similar custom build already so if you are interested then please contact me through:

thank you
