Adding VPN

Post#1 by Austinite » 20 Jul 2019, 16:58

Using search function I could not find the answer to this. I want a kiosk distro that requires a VPN connection in order to surf. Is there a page that explains how to set that up? Are multiple vendors supported? Some easier to use than others. Using ProXPN but not wed to any specific vendor. Thanks in advance.

Hello Austinite,

VPN is not supported in kiosk and will never be. Unless its for the use case when you can manually load new certificate from the USB stick and replace old one which expired.

Same cert problem as with EAP TLS authentication:
Modify wpa_supplicant.conf (Post by fanthom #64880)

If its really for the case when you can manually load new certificate then custom build would be required.

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

Thanks - that makes sense.

Is there any setup where you can connect to a VPN through another application perhaps? I would prefer not to VPN my whole internet connection but I guess that is the definitive answer.
