Configure Nokia Smartphones for secure wireless access
The following instructions enable Nokia mobile devices running the Symbian operating system to connect to eduroam, the secure wireless network.
Your Nokia mobile device must have built-in wireless networking to connect to the eduroam wireless network.
These instructions are known to work on the Nokia N95, E71 and E63. Other Nokia Smartphones running the Symbian operating system Series 70, or Series 60 3rd Edition, should also be able to connect to eduroam using these instructions.
Please note, the screen layout and menus of your Nokia device may differ from those specified in the instructions below.
- Select "Menu" then "Tools" then "Settings".
- Select "Connection" then "Access points".
- Select "Options", then "New Access Point". Use the following settings:
- Connection name: "eduroam"
- Data bearer: "Wireless LAN"
- WLAN network name: "eduroam"
- Network Status: "Public"
- WLAN network mode: "Infrastructure"
- WLAN Security Mode: "WPA/WPA2"
- Select "WLAN Security Settings". Use the following settings:
- WPA/WPA2: "EAP"
- WPA2 only mode: "Off"
- Select "EAP plug-in settings".
- From the available options ensure only "EAP-PEAP" is enabled ("Options" then "Enable"). Disable all other listed options in the EAP plug-in settings page ("Options" then "Disable").
- Select "EAP-PEAP" then "Options" then "Edit".
- Select the "Settings" tab. Use the following settings:
- Personal Certificate: "Not Defined"
- Authority Certificate: "UTN-USERFirst-Hardware", which is signed by "AddTrust External CA Root".
- Username in use: "User Defined"
- User name: Enter your UUN.
- Realm in use: "User defined"
- Realm: leave blank.
- Allow Peapv0, Allow Peapv1 and Allow Peapv2 should all be "Yes"
- Select the "EAPs" tab.
- From the available options ensure only "EAP-MSCHAPv2" is enabled ("Options" then "Enable"). Disable all other listed EAPs options ("Options" then "Disable").
- Select "EAP-MSCHAPv2" then "Options" then "Edit". In the "EAP-MSCHAPv2" settings use the following:
- User name: Enter your username as your UUN plus "@ed.ac.uk", e.g. "firstname.lastname@example.org".
- Prompt password: "No"
- Password: Enter the password which you specified when you registered for the Wireless service.
Select Back repeatedly until you reach the Nokia device's main screen. You should now be able to connect to the eduroam secure wireless network.
You may be asked to re-enter your credentials if you change your password.
Installing the wireless root certificates
If you are having problems with certificates or cannot get your device working you may need to download and install the certificates below to your device.
You should only need to import the AddTrust External CA Root certificate into your device. If that doesn't work try importing all three certificates. Each certificate is available in two formats: Base64 or DER.
Most devices will work with either format, however for Nokia/Symbian series phones you should use the DER format certificate.
