    Default [WiFi] How to configure campus network on iPhone wifi

    Hello, I have difficulty connecting to my campus network. When using my mac to connect to the network i get an authenticity certificate saying 'would i like to authenticate the 802.11x server'. I then, in airport, have to enter my user name and password. Is there a way to configure this kind of network in the iphone? If anybody can lead me in the right direction that would be great.

    I'm guessing your network is running some Cisco or Juniper access control software. Since its not something I'm familiar with like a web VPN client that juniper has or clean access/vpn connect from cisco, I'm not exactly sure how your campus' security works. I know 802.11x authentication is different, but expect support in the coming months.

    Soon after the SDK comes out, expect a Cisco VPN client or atleast cisco vpn support in the iPhone. Currently the iPhone doesn't support IPSec, but it will most likely after the SDK arrives. I'm sure some other company will also release software to enable 802.11x authentication support as well.

    In the mean time, you're stuck on edge

    What campus is that?
    I have not seen a full deployment of wifi authentication using 802.1x.

    Normally, the campus will offer some other alternative for OS that does not have 802.1x support. Basically, your phone wifi is associated with a nearby wifi Acesspoint (meaning your phone has an IP address) . However, traffic is blocked until you are authenticated then traffic is opened.

    Can you open your safari browser and go to any website. Hopefully, the browser will get redirected to your campus authentication page where you can login via the web. This sometimes is referred to as captive portal which can be powered by an appliance such as bluesocket in the backend.

    Also check with your campus for VPN support. If the campus VPN server supports PPTP or L2PT, you can configure your iphone via VPN as well.

    Most universities in Europe, Australia and Asia-Pacific use 802.1x w/ TTLS-PAP (a specific subset of the WPA Enterprise spec).

    It's a mandatory requirement of being part of the eduroam scheme which allows you to use your own student login credentials at another university.

    I have the same problem with my university. I think I may have conceptualized a solution but it would involve some command-line toodling that is unfortunately above my level. Before anyone judges harshly, I realize that I might be off in my understanding of WPA and WPA Enterprise (and the difference).

    So I saw online that it is possible to install a BSD terminal app onto a jailbroken ipone. If it is a legit shell, couldn't it be possible to use a comand-line based program that authenticates a WPA enterprise network? I think I heard of something open-source called wpa_supplicant that runs in a shell and does exactly this. So, then wouldn't it be possible to log the iphone/ipod onto a wpa enterprise network using this app to bypass the Apple GUI wireless connection settings?

    LMK if this sparks any better thoughts

    Can someome running the 2.0 beta test 802.1X support. It seems it hasn't been reported ANYWHERE.
