To block a website or keyword see the Content filter Tab below.

 

NETKIOSK WHITE LIST CONFIGURATION

Enter the domain name only. Do not enter http:// or www or .com etc.
You can add up to 40 website names (domains) to allow.
Netkiosk uses domain whitelisting which means you do not need to enter the full website address.
For example: if your website is http://www.mycompany.com/somefolder/somepage.html
You ONLY enter the main domain which in the example is mycompany
Do not enter anything like .com etc or the whitelist will not work properly.
Websites are often redirected to country domains or different subdomain which makes content filtering very tricky.
This is why Netkiosk only looks at the main domain name for the whitelist.
If your domain has a Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or another subpage. then make sure to add these to the whitelist.
On sites like Facebook and Twitter not always the Full domain is listed due to the character lenght and other restrictions.
These sites then often abbreviate your domain.
We have added a few samples which, of course you can remove to add your own website domain, and others.

NETKIOSK IDLE TIME TIMER.
The idle time timer can be set to allow for Netkiosk to reset after x time in case a user leaves the PC without logging out.
After the PC is idle for x minutes. A screen will pop up.
This shows the user that Netkiosk will clear their sessions after 30 seconds.
A user has the option to click cancel. The user can then continue to use Netkiosk.
You can change the reset text to your own text. You can also change the idle time settings.

BROWSER LAYOUT OPTIONS TAB
