Ubuntu: Problems connecting to eduroam wifi - ubuntu touch



Question:

I am trying to connect to our university's eduroam wi-fi network with my Nexus 4 running Ubuntu touch (utopic latest build), but can't get past the first stage. I wonder if anyone can help please?

I am following these instructions (which worked for my iPhone): http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/itsupport/mobile/eduroam/ But when I go to the bandit.st-andrews.ac.uk/connect page then follow the link to 'eduroam setup' I get the error message:

Authorization Required
This server could not verify that you are authorised to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.
Apache/2.2.16 (Debian) Server at bandit.st-andrews.ac.uk Port 443

(Clearly it's the latter option (browser) as I haven't been asked for my credentials yet.) Is there a way round this, or am I just not going to be able to connect until further down the Ubuntu touch development road...

Thanks!


Solution:1

I use Aquaris E4.5 (Ubuntu edition). For me the following settings for the network manager on the phone worked:

Wireless Security : WPA & WPA2 Enterprise

Authentification : PEAP

Anonymous Id : (none)

Certificate : (none)

PEAP Version : Version 0

Auth. protocol : MSCHAPv2

user name : your_login

password : your_password

hope this helps, Julien


Solution:2

There seems to be some variation between the eduroam setups at different organisations: my configuration works at QUT (Bris Vegas, AU), and worked at ANU, but doesn't get to the IP address stage at Monash Clayton campus (Melbourne, AU). My configuration - almost the same as Julien's, above;

Wireless Security : WPA & WPA2 Enterprise

Authentification : PEAP

Anonymous Id : (none)

Certificate : (none)

PEAP Version : Automatic

Auth. protocol : MSCHAPv2

user name : your_username@uni_domain

password : your_password

I added a 'thawteCA.cer' certificate while trying to get set up at Monash; I'll let you know if it still works at QUT when I try on Monday.
