Linux Internet Kiosk
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 23, 2005
I'm new to linux and need som help understanding some basics. I'm a Windows network admin needing to implement public access PCs for users to surf to our website and links from it. Beyond that, they will need nothing but to print out pages. I stumbled across an iso called BoothBox on the sourceforge website. It's exactly what I need but I need to add printer and video drivers and add web pages to the whitelist. How can this be accomplished? I'm clueless as to how I would unpackage the iso, make the necessary changes, and compile a new iso. Must this all be done from within the Linux OS or could it be performed from within windows?
Linux Internet Kiosk
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 11, 2008
Alright here is what is happening:
At work I have been assigned to set up an internet kiosk on a linux machine. The rest of the network is extremely secure and this machine will be solely to access email sites and other sites blocked on the regular network. This machine is EXTREMELY old, it is IBM and it has 128 MB RAM. I tried to install Ubuntu on it to no avail, it cannot handle Ubuntu. Then I tried DSL, and personally I can't stand how it looks and don't like the system overall. Does anyone know of any other easy to use and configure, low resource, linux distibutions? I need to be able to make a guest user with almost no rights on the machine except internet access.
And another problem not related, for some reason the monitor on that computer just decided to flash and turn purple out of nowhere and I can't figure out a good RGB, contrast, and brightness setting to get it normal looking, I've got it decent but it's still a pain in the eye to look at.
Thanks for any help in
Best Ubuntu / Linux Internet Content Filter Solutions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 28, 2012
I've been searching for several years for a good internet content filtering solution for my Linux boxes. I've tried several different apps. Some OS based, browser addons, and even DNS. I'll explain each of the solutions and my experiences briefly here.
1) Mobicip Online Safety.
Although this option is not free it is the best option I've found for the Linux OS so far. Recently Mobicip updated their repository with working .deb files for the newest versions of Ubuntu (12.04 as of now). I'm actually using this service right now. Its relatively cheap compared to other filtering services. They have a good working tutorial, and with a paid filtering service you get software support, which is a second plus. As far as I've tested it does an extremely good job of filtering...Even search terms. It also has a record of all sites blocked and for what reason. Once configured it does it by itself, Password protected and all!! It also has the option to email filtering summaries to yourself,(
New to linux, internet connection problems
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 12, 2011
I'm new to linux and have just bought a new laptop that I have installed 11.04 on.
I can connect to my wireless router no problem at all, however, when I try to load webpages things go fine but about 2 - 5 seconds is stops loading, and the only way to fix it is to reload the page. When downloading the download will pause after a few seconds, and the only way to get it started again is to pause and un pause the download, this happens constantly, and is very frustrating for downloads over a few MB. The longest period of uninterrupted download i've go has been ~30 seconds.
Can anyone explain why this is happening? The wireless signal is usually 3 out of 4 bars strong. The same thing happens even when I sit right next to the router.
SOLVED puppy linux internet connection problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2009
hi everybody. i apologise cos i realise this isn't perhaps the most appropriate place to go with this one. but i am stumped!
i have just salvaged an old dell optiplex by installing puppy linux 4.20 retro, but i cant get access to the net. i'm unclear as to what further info you might need so please feel free to ask for it if you want anything else.
i have tried with both ethernet and wireless to connect using the BT Home Hub/Router but i cant get connected.
using ethernet i hit connect and go through the 'connect' process and it tells me it has configured for access but i cant actually connect.
using wireless via a usb interface i can locate some random i.p address but no others. again, it won't connect.
my router usually requires a wep key when i am using ubuntu but i cant find any way to enter this or any other information either.
i have tried googling and searching on more puppy based sites but haven't (so far) found anything, though i shall of course keep looking. so i
[SOLVED] Damn Small Linux Internet Problems
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 12, 2007
Well I've installed Damn Small Linux onto a flash drive and have managed to boot into it however the internet doesn't work. My ethernet hardware is: "3com 3c920 integrated fast ethernet controller 3c905c-tx compatible". After a google search and viewing some irc logs it seems that this particular NIC is problematic in Linux. So has anyone managed to get this to work in DSL or have any clues on how to do so?
Thanks in advance,

Linux Internet Connection Problems

I just recently installed CentOS 6.3 on my secondary hard drive. I am using a USB D-Link Wireless Model No. DWA-130 Adapter to wirelessly connect to the internet. On my primary drive Windows 7 Pro 64-bit is intalled. There is an internet connection on the Windows drive but not on the CentOS one. Could anyone tell me the source of the problem and how to fix it?
