Run without network

Post#1 by pfisher » 11 Apr 2018, 19:45

I need to run my kiosk without network connectivity. Its files are local and everything works. But as soon as I unplug the NIC on this dev machine, it throws up a white screen and the party is over because "there is no internet connection".

Thanks in advance.

Porteus Kiosk does not depend on internet availability (except for installation stage).

Maybe your website needs to download some stuff (e.g. fonts) from the internet? Please test with simple 'Hello world' in the local index.html.

Thanks

Good call. I didn't think of that. Likely, it is css dependencies. I had seen mention in the forum that running offline requires customization and I was afraid it might be related to that. I will check and update.
