Connecting to KIT and eduroam
The following shows how to connect to KIT. To connect to eduroam simply replace all occurrences of KIT with eduroam.
1. Connecting without manual configuration
An Authentification without prior configuration with your user name is possible. If you tried to connect to the KIT networks before and are now encountering a problem, please delete the existing configuration by following these steps:
- Go to "Utilities" and choose "Network"
- Choose "Wi-Fi" and disable it
- Click on "more options " in "Network"
- Choose KIT in the "Wi-Fi" tab and remove it from your "preferred networks" by clicking the minus icon
- Click on "Go" -> "Applications" -> "Services" -> "key chain administration" and delete all KIT entries
- Reenable Wi-Fi
Connect to KIT
Verify the certificate of the RADIUS server. The KIT RADIUS servers are radius-wlan.scc.kit.edu. Click on "show certificate"[figure 9]. The root certificate is T-TeleSec GlobalRoot Class 2. Click "Continue" to accept the certificate.
After successful authentification the connection is established.
2. Connecting with manual configuration
A manual configuration as described here is only possible up to Mac OS X version 10.6. Starting with Mac OS X 10.7, a configuration file is required, which can be created with the iPhone Configuration Utility. This authentification method is optional. You can also connect to the network without existing configuration file as described above.
These instructions are based on Mac OS X version 10.5.
Go to "System settings" and click on "Network". Choose "AirPort" in the list on the left side [figure 3]. Make sure AirPort is deactivated. Click on "more options" and delete any existing KIT entries. Choose the tab 802.1X [figure 4].
Click the plus icon in the bottom left corner, choose "add user profile" and enter the title KIT. Enter your user name and password (e.g. ab1234 or ∂kit eduuxxxx). Enter KIT as "wireless network". Check only "TTLS" under "identification" [ ∂kit edufigure 5]. Select TTLS and click "configure". Choose "PAP" as inner TTLS identification method and enter anonymous as "outer identity" [ ∂kit edufigure 6].
Click "OK" twice and click "apply". You can now connect to KIT as shown in part 1.
