I'm trying to get Porteus to work with a remote config via https-URL & authentication, which I set in my PXE-boot capable image
(according to section e) on http://porteus-kiosk.org/remote-managem ... quirements).
The reason why I'm using https is that I want to set a single root password for all clients in the kiosk-config.
Sadly busybox's wget (stored in initrdpxe) doesn't seem to support SSL and I'm left with an error message that the url is malformed:
Code: Select all
wget: not an http or ftp url https://username:firstname.lastname@example.org/kiosk-config.txt?kiosk=SOME-ID-TAG
From what I understand, in order to use secure HTTP, one is supposed to install Porteus on a storage drive.
After booting up, the system's stand-alone wget takes over and checks for differences between the local and the remote configuration.
In my case however, the initial configuration is being loaded before booting up Porteus and can't be fetched due to said incapabilities.
Maybe I'm also getting something wrong here...
I'd appreciate any help/work-around on https-authentication for kiosk-configurations in PXE images.
Thanks in advance!
