Netkiosk Standard 2020 Free version.

Netkiosk Standard is a straightforward application that turns your PC or any supported machine into a public or personal internet Kiosk.
Lock down your PC and limit its reach to only browser-based activity without worrying about illintended users.

Fullscreen interface that cannot be resized

After the application is started, a Bing homepage tab will pop up. Like the regular browser, you can add as many new tabs as you wish, but the last one, no matter what site it displays, cannot be closed. Right clicking anywhere on the screen, a drop-down menu with several quick actions, and more important, the Admin menu, will be displayed.

Netkiosk Admin

The Admin acts as the control panel for this utility. From there you can set up the account, restore all previous settings to default, enable and disable some features, gain access to the tools customization settings and the most important, close the app and unlock the PC.

Furthermore, when the installation process is over, two icons are generated. The one called NetkioskAdvancedConfiguration is a launcher-like tool that provides several options and shortcuts related to account, machine and OS control. Also, the same settings can be accessed from inside the Admin menu by clicking on Security.

Bookmarks and Whitelist

Netkiosk can hold up to ten bookmarks that can be managed from the Bookmark Toolbar.
All you have to do is type in the domain and check the box to enable them.

Regarding the Whitelist, due to domain filtering, you have to add all the sites you visit to this list.
Adding a domain can be done by typing only the domain name in the box. Don’t use the “https://” or “.com” parts or your Whitelist won’t function accordingly.

In conclusion

Netkiosk Standard is a neat security application purposely designed to turn your computer into a public/personal terminal that can provide access to web browsing only.

Netkiosk Standard 2020 detailed configuration instructions.

Netkiosk Standard. Free kiosk software

Netkiosk Admin Tab

Add your own username and password.
Enable or disable the Tab key.
Automatically start the Netkiosk watcher program.
The watcher program will restart Netkiosk in case of an unexpected crash.
Restore all settings to default.

Netkiosk Home Page Tab

1. Enter your home page in the text box next to option 1.
2. You can enable the white list under option 2.
3. See below how to properly configure the white list settings
4. To block a website or keyword see the content filter Tab
5. Turn the idle time timer on or off. See below for the idle time timer instructions.

Netkiosk Standard white list configuration.
1. You can add up to 40 website names (domains) to allow.
2. Enter the domain name only. Do not enter http:// or www or .com etc.
3. Netkiosk uses domain white listing 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
4. You ONLY enter the main domain which in the example is mycompany
5. Do not enter anything like .com etc or the white list will not work properly.
Websites are often redirected to country domains or different sub domain which makes content filtering very tricky.
This is why Netkiosk only looks at the main domain name for the white list.
If your domain has a Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or another sub-page then make sure to add these to the white list.
On sites like Facebook and Twitter not always the Full domain is listed due to the character length 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 Standard idle time timer.
1. You can set the idle time from 1 to 60 minutes.
If after x time a user leaves the PC without logging out, or the PC is idle for x minutes a Netkiosk screen will pop up.
2. The Netkiosk idle time screen shows the user that Netkiosk will clear their sessions after 30 seconds. (default)
3. A user has the option to click cancel. The user can then continue to use Netkiosk.
4. You can change the reset text to your own text. You can also change the idle time settings.

Netkiosk Browser layout Tab.

You can instantly switch from tabbed browser to full screen display kiosk browser.
Turn Netkiosk display info kiosk mode to ON. to hide all the menu bars.
You can hide icons and configure Netkiosk to suit your needs.
Browser clicked links allow you to open all pages in the same tab.
The extra option (security popups) should normally not be changed.

Start Netkiosk top most. Netkiosk will run in front of all other Windows and Windows dialogs.
If a Windows dialog opens users can’t access these as they open in the background.
Do NOT run Netkiosk Top Most when using the Netkiosk OSK

Netkiosk Tabbed Browser mode (Default)

2. You can show or hide the Netkiosk toolbar and give access to up to 10 fixed book marks.
3. Make sure you add the website name (domain) to the white list also if the white list is enabled.

Netkiosk Content Filter Tab.

Besides the white list Netkiosk also has a custom content filter where you can block entire websites or keywords.
A keyword blocks the entire website when the keyword is found on the web page.
Be careful, as some websites contain keywords like Facebook that you might not want to block.
If you want to block a website like facebook.com, you just enter Facebook in the domain list, on the Content Filter Tab.
Again do not enter anything like http:// or www or .com etc. You only need to enter the main domain name of the website.
You can redirect the user to a custom blocked page when a keyword or website is visited that has been disallowed by the administrator.

2. When a user types in a text box on a website the Netkiosk or Windows OSK will automatically show.
3. If you do not need to give access to the Netkiosk or Windows OSK you can simply hide the icons.
4. You can change the TabTip.exe location to the location of your own custom OSK (or third party OSK)
5. The xml file location is used by the Netkiosk OSK for the OSK layout. An expert can edit the xml file to change the layout.

Netkiosk Extra Options Tab.

In some cases when a user logs our certain programs might remain open in the background. This is especially the case with Acrobat Reader.
By adding the Acrobat Reader Program name (Process) Acrobat Reader will automatically close when the user logs out.
You can apply this principle to any other program you want to close when the user logs out (Except for Netkiosk of course.)

Netkiosk Settings Tab.

You have multiple options to control the settings saving and loading.
You can also store the settings on a remote server.
When Netkiosk starts it will download your settings file from your server and load the settings automatically.

Free customization.

Creating win-win solutions for everyone with our free customization.*

You are xx% happy with Netkiosk but there’s something missing.

Oh yes, we have a solution for that!
So you find the software you think you might like and you decide to download it.
After trying the program you come across an issue we have all had in the past. 
You love this software but it does not have the features or options you want.
So what do you do next? Look for other software? Not needed.
Well, with Netkiosk you don’t have to look any further.
We know that different organizations often have different software needs.
This makes it pretty difficult for a software company to make one software program that simply suits everyone.
And we all know that it is almost impossible to find a 100% perfect program that suits your needs 100%.
So what solution did we come up with?
Well, from day one we simply decided to offer free customization to all our customers.
We thought that if it might benefit one customer it might also benefit others.
Instead of pushing our own “creative” updates to customers that they might not like or even need.
What happens when I need some free customization?
We work with you to add the extra features and options you need and make sure they work for you.
We will then give you this complete customized version for your organization.
We do not put a time limit on customization.
If in the future if you require any further changes we add these for you also.
We hope this creates peace of mind knowing that we’ll always keep Netkiosk working for you.
So how much does this “free customization” cost? You may ask?
Well, that’s easy. Any customization is completely free and included in the license price. 
We can also customize our free versions for you.
But we hope you agree that we then might need to charge little for our time..
The cost to customize any of our free versions depends on the customization you require.
What do I need to do if I want any customization done?
You don’t even have to buy Netkiosk yet. Just contact us and ask us if we can do what you want.
We’ll have a quick chat and we’ll tell you straight up if we can or can’t customize Netkiosk for you.
You can then run your own customized trial even before you decided to buy. Without any obligation.
After all, no good paying for software that doesn’t work for you 100%. With us 100% means reliable 24/7/365
