Dear Porteus,

I try to configure a Porteus Kiosk (version 4.4.0) to show only 1 website www.jozefsimons.be about a local writer/author in order to use it in a local museum

The way I thought to realise this:

- Creating a whitelist with only www.jozefsimons.be in it

- Additionally setting the homepage identically (and tested it: worked just fine!)

- Disabled firewall

- Disabled address bar etc.

Then I saved the configuration and burned Porteus on the local hard drive of an old PC.

After the restart, the homepage doesn't come up and a kind of "blocked" sign is shown.

Is there a good reason why this shouldn't work?

Thanx for any help,

Hello Cor,

www.jozefsimons.be redirects to jozefsimons.be. Please whitelist 'jozefsimons.be' (without www) and it should work.

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