    Default [Need Help] WLAN 802.1X WEP and certificates (VeriSign)

    Hi guys,

    thanks first for the overwhelming support you give throughout the numerous threads. It helped me a lot and I will try to help new users with their iPhones.

    At university I need to use the VeriSign certificate to connect with my mac to the WLAN. Further I need to define not only a pasword to do so, but my username and a password. Actually it works fine, but the iPhone seems not to support certificates.

    Is there a way to do this somehow? To accept the VeriSign certificate and connect to the WLAN of the university? Just a way to be able defining a username and pass.

    Thanks in advance... Hopefully someone out there's able to help me.

    I'm in the same boat as you--unfortuneately, the iphone doesn't support WEP networks. I'm sure that it would be easy to get the certificate onto the phone--just find where they're placed in OS X, then put them in the same directory on the iPhone via SSH--but I don't think that there's a way to login to a WEP system via the iPhone. Perhaps through Mobileterminal? Can you login to a WEP network via command line? Hmm, maybe its possible after all--I'll have to look into it. Watch this space.

    Sure the iPhone does support WEP. Just press on "Other" when you see the list of available networks and you can define a WLAN yourself. when you do so there
    s the possibility to choose what enryption the network uses. In this list is "WEP, WPA and WPA2" listed.

    Thanks anyways...

    Actually, I (and maybe the OP as well) misstyped--my college doesn't use WEP, we use a cirtificate-aided WPA Enterprise network. Duh. Forgive me--I woke up about five minutes before i made my first post.

    Hey, actually no. My University definitely uses 802.1X WEP with VeriSign certificates, got it black on white in front of me.

    I finally figured out a way to bypass this.

    Here's a step by step:

    You log in with a laptop that accepts certificates.

    Take note of the address that you get redirected to in order to log in:

    ie:
    Code:
    https://1.1.1.1:1234/loginpage.html
    Look at the source of this file.

    You should see the part where you log in as something like this:

    <form action="/something/something" method="post" ....>

    <input name="userid">
    <input name="password">

    there could be other input values and "userid" and "password" might be different depending on your university.

    First, determine the url of the page you're posting the information to.

    In our example, it would be
    Code:
    https://1.1.1.1:1234/something/something
    Next, we include in the post information, this is done by placing "?" after the url, and seperating keys with &.

    So our final url would be
    Code:
    https://1.1.1.1:1234/something/something?userid=yourid&password=yourpassword
    When you go to this url, it will post the login information to the server without having to accept a certificate.

    You can make a bookmark to this location. Every time you need to go log in but can't retrieve the certificate, just go to the bookmark and you should be logged in.

    EDIT: You need to go to this location or bookmark in a new page. It doesn't work for me when I go to it from an existing page, but when I use it in a totally new and blank page, it works.

    Note, that in between the <form> tags there might be more <input> tags with things like redirect url, etc. You might need to include a few of these. basically, follow the above format and do inputname=value seperated by &s as above.

    Hey,
    thanks for your advice regarding the VeriSign Certificate. Actually I am never redirected to any Website when I use my laptop. Whether it's a Mac or a PC, I just connect via the OS and it works. Is there any way to bypass this?

    Thanks in advance.
