Remote config not accessible

Post#1 by jwood.ok » 06 Dec 2018, 16:39

Alright, I've moved on from my initial issue, which Fanthom graciously fixed on to another one.

I'm trying remote management, so I generated a config. When I am running the wizard, I click test and the config is accessible, but after the install and reboot, it says that it isn't. Perhaps I'm doing something incorrectly in my config? See (sanitized) copy below:

connection=wired
dhcp=yes
proxy_config=http:/myserver.mydomain.com/pac/test.pac
browser=chrome
homepage=https://myhomepage.mydomain.com
allow_icmp_protocol=yes
kiosk_config=https://porteus:G8NnuFG6h7x9@192.168.1. ... efault.txt
scheduled_action=Monday-06:00 Tuesday-06:00 Wednesday-06:00 Thursday-06:00 Friday-06:00 Saturday-06:00 Sunday-06:00 action:reboot
allow_popup_windows=yes
disable_private_mode=yes
root_password=Qx2A878rYqY4
screensaver_idle=5
timezone=America/Chicago
wallpaper=http:/myserver.mydomain.com/image/background.jpg
wake_on_lan=yes
additional_components=uefi.zip 08-ssh.xzm 06-fonts.xzm

Do you have this parameter present in your remote config?

Code: Select all

kiosk_config=https://porteus:G8NnuFG6h7x9@192.168.1. ... efault.txt
If yes then please login to kiosk over SSH and try to download your config using this command:

Code: Select all

wget https://porteus:G8NnuFG6h7x9@192.168.1. ... efault.txt
Please post the error you'll be getting.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Alright, so first off, pardon me but I had mistyped that. The way I have it in config is just http, not https, so its actually int he config file as:

Code: Select all

kiosk_config=http://porteus:G8NnuFG6h7x9@192.168.1.50/kiosks/default.txt
Secondly, when I put in the wget command as such:

Code: Select all

wget http://porteus:G8NnuFG6h7x9@192.168.1.50/kiosks/default.txt
the file is downloaded successfully. Are there any logs for the boot process where I could see what error is happening there?


Thanks,

There are no booting logs which could be checked.

It could be a formatting issue so please send me your remote config (want a file rather than its content) to support@porteus-kiosk.org.

Thanks
