Setting up kiosk mode via console
– from Scout 15 21071 –
The Scout Console interface allows you to define kiosk mode for Citrix Self-Service (A) as well as for the Builtin Browser (B). The corresponding function is located in the device configuration under Security. The kiosk mode can be configured differently depending on the OU.
For the relevant devices, open Device configuration > Security.
Under Kiosk mode in the list-field, choose whether you want to activate the kiosk mode for Citrix Self-Service (A) or Browser (B).
If you already have a kioskmode.ini or kioskconfig.ini, click Import...
Depending on the selected type, the configuration dialog for Citrix Self-Service stores (A) or for browsers (B) opens.
1 Create new browser 2 Edit selected browser 3 Set selected browser as default 4 Mark selected browser as favorite
Create and configure at least one store (A) / browser (B) for kiosk mode.
If you have created multiple stores (A) / browsers (B), you can then set one as default.
On logon, default stores (A) / browsers (B) are pre-selected or started automatically.
If you have created multiple stores (A) / browsers (B), you can mark one or more as favorites.
Favorites are shown to the user on the store selector of the system bar with an asterisk.
Favorites for stores can only be defined without MultiStore.
Your configuration is written to the kioskconfig.ini file. To check it, click the Preview button. The next time the server connects to the devices, your selected kiosk mode type (terminal.ini entry) will be transferred along with the kioskconfig.ini.
(A): On the devices, after start-up, the Citrix Self-Service interface opens in kiosk mode. The configured stores are available to the user. No other applications can be started apart from the Self-Service interface.
(B): On the devices, after start-up, the Builtin browser opens in kiosk mode. The configured functions are available to the user. No other applications can be started apart from the browser.
For correct use of the kiosk mode, we recommend that you restrict the user rights for the device as required.
