Configure iOS device or Mac OS X Lion for use with 802.1X CampusWLAN from HS RM

With this configuration guide you can configure your iPhone or iPod Touch via Mac OS X 10.5 for the CampusWLAN of the Hochschule Rhein-Main.

The actual configuration guide for desktop computers can be found here.

Necessary previous steps:

  1. Download Telekom Certificate (if you have not already done so).
  2. Download iPhone Configuration Utility from Apple
  3. Install and open iPhone Configuration Utility

Create new profile:

Use the name you like. I used CampusWLAN twice:

Go to Wi-Fi:

Enter CampusWLAN as SSID, choose Company WPA/WPA2 and select (only) PEAP:

Click on Identification and enter your ITC user name:

Go to Certificates:

Add the certificate from Deutsche Telekom:

Go back to Wi-Fi, choose Trust and tick Deutsche Telekom Root CA 2:

If you want to use the configuration on your iOS device, select your device in the left column, go to Configuration Profile and click the Install button:

If you want to use the profile on Mac OS X Lion (10.7), click ‘Export’ on the top bar of the iPhone Configuration Utility and save it, e.g., to your desktop. Afterwards, double-click the profile to install it. Finally, choose this profile in the ‘System Preferences’ app under Network -> Wi-Fi -> Advanced… -> 802.1X.

Finish the installation on your device and enter your ITC password (Keep in my mind: You cannot use your root password. You must have created a user password before.)
