A10 Boot to web page
« on: November 03, 2014, 02:26:39 PM »
Hi all, first time poster and very new to Olimex boards and Linux in general. Very excited about the possibilities though.

I'm entertaining the idea of a project that would use an A10 board. Root access for configuration would be via console over SSH or TTYS0. But for every day use, I want it to power up, open a browser directly and access a single web page on a local network. The user would not have permissions to do anything other than interact with this website (this would include not being able to changing browser settings or zoom). Control via keyboard.

Similar idea to the interactive map interface you get in department stores.

What options are there to get this behavior?

Cheers,
Sam.

Or something like so called "Kiosk mode"? (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiosk_software).
