Porteus Kiosk 4.5.0 available for download
The Porteus Kiosk 4.5.0 is now available for download, the company announced in a press release.
Software upgrades in this release include Linux kernel 4.12.10, Mozilla Firefox 52.3.0 ESR and Google Chrome 60.0.3112.113. The release has added support for EAP over LAN (802.1x) authentication on wired connections.
VNC and SSH daemons can be limited to listening on a local host interface. This is useful from a security standpoint as nobody can access the kiosk on a public network interface. The Porteus Kiosk Server, Guacamole, NoVNC, will be needed in order to tunnel VNC or SSH traffic to the kiosk's local host interface.
It is possible to calibrate multiple touchscreen devices that connect to the kiosk.
Cloud and ThinClient systems will no longer expose shutdown options by default. It is required to enable the shut down menu in the kiosk configuration in order to allow restarting or powering off the PC by the users.
