Hi Support, I have deployed a bunch of kiosks using the remote management config file but messed up the hostnames. :fool:

is it possible to rename the kiosk hostname in the Administrator panel? :worthy:

let me know. thank you.

You can change the hostnames using remote config(s) and this parameter:

Code: Select all

hostname=
If you use a single config for all your kiosks then you need to enable nested configurations:

Thanks
