It hasn't been an issue with me, personally. As long as the words on your license and your background are clear, you should be fine.

Wired connection is recommended if possible to avoid any situations.
But to be honest, if you have a good and stable wifi connection then you
can do it over WiFi. (I have done my 4th Remote Exam today morning and
never experienced any issue)

Hi,

The answer is in the pdf document to get your ready for the exam:

Remote-exams-preparation-ebook 

Can I use a wireless internet connection? Wifi is not advised. Wherever possible, use a wired internet connection for stability and compatibility. Wifi speeds can vary based on a variety of factors that may have an impact on your exam. The remote exam live USB may not detect all wireless network adapters. If the wifi adapter of your computer is not detected by the remote exam live USB image, then wired internet will be the only option.

(as @Gineesh said, if it works fast enough, if it's stable, etc... then it should be ok, only you will take the risk and responsability :) ).

Cheers,

Hi y'all,

 

Has anybody had any problem taking the exam with PiHole on their network? I usually update my DHCP server to use the ISP DNS servers rather than my PiHole IP, but thinking about it, I wonder if that is even necessary, since it is likely that the Red Hat exam image will use its own dedicated DNS IPs rather than your local network IP.

Hi,

I used Pihole during remote exams, I don't think I have had any issues due to that.

Saying that, it probably depends on what filter/query are used within PiHole to block some DNS queries...and it depends how the Remote Exam image is communicating...

I think it's PiHole is not  reason for any concern in that context, based on my experiences with that and 5-10 different exams attempts.

Can I set the keyboard language? Can I take the exam with my own keyboard language?

Hi,

Yes you can. When the remote exam boots, it prompts the user for various configuration steps, including the keyboard locale. I removed the default US English keyboard layout, and instead, I used the French Swiss type, it worked properly.

Cheers,
