external links not working

Post#1 by kontaminierer » 06 Jan 2021, 15:04

Hey guys,

need some :sos: We use the Porteus Kiosk for our library catalog with many external links. Most of them working fine but some not and I don't know why?
For example some links which not working:

Code: Select all

https://auth.brockhaus.de/login; https://hilfe.onleihe.de/
I get only Access Denied with the lock?
Then i tried to use the links as managed Bookmarks but i get the same error.

here is my config file:

Code: Select all

connection=wired
netmask=255.255.255.0
ip_address=172.xxx.xxx.xxx
default_gateway=172.xxx.xxx.xxx
dns_server=213.xxx.xxx.xxx 213.xxx.xxx.xxx
network_interface=eth0
browser=firefox
disable_address_bar=yes
homepage=https://xxx.de
primary_keyboard_layout=de
session_idle=0

Hello kontaminierer,

1) Two webpages you have provided must be redirecting to some other URLs and you need to whitelist final URLs.

I see that "https://hilfe.onleihe.de/" redirects to "https://hilfe.onleihe.de/site/on" so you must whitelist "https://hilfe.onleihe.de/site/on".
I cant access "https://auth.brockhaus.de/login" as its probably an internal webpage so you need to find the proper URL yourself.

2) All whitelisted URLs must be in one line in your config otherwise they will be ignored.

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