Porteus Kiosk Server and Virtualbox

Post#1 by kybarg » 13 Jul 2021, 14:45

Hello!
I have Porteus Kiosk Server and Porteus Kiosk in virtualbox. Kiosk and Server both work as expected.
I can also connect to each one using SSH usign host->guest and even guest<->guest.
The issue is that Kiosk can't connect to Server and I get "Server is not accessible or remote config is not present" message
Folowed all the steps here https://porteus-kiosk.org/server.html#troubleshooting

Hello kybarg,

Please ensure you have 'kiosk_config=server://config-name' parameter present in the remote config which is hosted on PK Server.
If you have this parameter present then please post your kiosk configs (remove sensitive data from them like passwords, URLs, etc):

a) the one which is hosted on PK Server

b) the one which you have generated during the kiosk installation:

Is this the config which you host on PK Server?
Is it visible as 'config1' in the Admin Panel?

Please provide the config which you see in the wizard during client installation.

Thanks
