Server Changes and Firewall

Post#1 by TXiAccess » 11 May 2018, 14:55

I have 2 questions regarding the Kiosk Server:

1. Is it possible to make any changes to the server without re-installation? For instance, is there any terminal command or something I could run to change the wifi it's on?

2. Is a firewall enabled by default on the server? I see there are firewall options in the kiosk setup but nothing for the server.

1) You can run any command you want in the terminal but your changes wont persist the server reboot unless you edit some files in persistent /opt/storage folder (please do not change there anything unless you know what you are doing).

2) Firewall editor is available under 'Tools' in the Admin Panel.

Thank you.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
