The Wish-list

By Bjarni R. Einarsson 2021-09-21, 18:06

If there are any particular features you would like to see added to or the PageKite service, feel free to edit this page and add them to the list:

  • A way to forward a single public port (don't care about port #) to a pre-defined port (22) on my own machine, without a proxy.
  • Better kite diagnostics on the /home/ page.
  • Configurable answering-machine pages
  • Prettier and more mobile-friendly answering-machine pages
  • A way to register a top-level domain
  • Better error-messages and UI for
  • IP-based access controls at front-end
  • WSGI support at the back-end
  • Zero-trust front-end
  • An ios and/or android app to monitor account/kites with the option of in app purchases to pay for the service
  • Support for Bonjour Sleep Proxy (wake Mac on Demand)
  • Simpler way to launch pagekite as daemon on startup.
  • Server region selection, response is slow from Australia to overseas kite servers
  • Notifications of kites going offline/online via email
  • Payment Method To Get Subscription Plan

Issue tracking at

Wishes that were granted

  • A wiki with a WishList and a HowTo!
  • Decent SSH support
  • A way to buy bandwidth
  • A way to password-protect a website so that I can share an "unsecured" internal website and give a password to a friend

Discarded ideas

  • as a tor entry node requires changes to tor.
  • A name that is easier to remember -- I keep forgetting page kite!

    Thank you so much for this service. Looking forward to a formal shop.

    Your instructions and how to's are well documented. I had a small hicup when trying to use latest version of Python. I uninstall it and installed version 2.6 and I got it running in no time.

    Once more, thank you

    Would love to be able to have user/pass access control as well as IP based.

    potosi_no: Thanks!

    Egill: I am working on that, actually. You can obviously do it today by reconfiguring your web server, but we're hoping that we can make it more user friendly by adding a nice UI to PageKite.

    Just launced Pagekite on my Windows laptop: works fine!
    Can I run Pagekite on Windows as a service? A howto would be nice (a 1 click installer would be perfect).
    It would be nice if would print at startup a clear message where to find your site.
    Something like:
    PageKite version xx is up and running.
    Visit your site at

    and not the very technical output stuff: this is usefull if things go wrong but useless if everthing is ok.

    It would be sweet if * were dual stacked IPv6/IPv4.

    I still cant get this to work with yunohost (self hosting distro: ) . Pagekite does not show the yunohost server front end. (firefox says' The page isn't redirecting properly') Desperate to get this working as pagekite and yunohost are ideal partners, but it refuses to show it correctly. If I disable pagekite firewall I can access my wordpress blog from yunohost ( ) but thats all I cant access the main yunohost front page. ) Any help or fix would be great.
