Keyfile Authentication with domain users

  • Hello,

    Previously I had a Veyon 4.0.7 deployment working smoothly using keyfile configuration, but after updating to 4.10/4.1.1 this method no longer seems to work. I think this is due to the change on the keyfiles/folders having ACL rule requirements now. Previously I just copied the public key to the clients appdata/veyon/keys/public folder and that seemed to be enough for access from the Masters.

    We are in a domain environment, but I do not want to use domain logon based authentication as the access checks cause teacher logon events on the DC for the client workstations, which throws our web filter for a loop and kicks students off the internet.

    With the keyfile I start running into the same problem as I now have to specify a user group for access. I'd just set it to "Everyone" but this does not seem to be possible. Setting it to Domain\Domain Users also does not seem to grant access. Importing the key using the config generator also doesn't work and the key pair ID always differs between client and master.

    What is the process to getting keyfile authentication to work like it did previously?
