How to connect to TUC wifi using Feisty

This is my first and maybe last english post. I will just record the procedure one has to follow to get wifi access using linux in the technical university of Crete.

Firstly, you need an user account. Go to the Information Services Center and ask in the basement. They will kindly help you there. Once you get your account, you need to login for the first time using a Windows box to change the initial password. You can do this in the computers they have right there.

After this, you can follow the instructions they have (they’re in Greek, but just look for the pictures) for windows. Be careful, missing any checkbox will make the authentication fail.

But if you’re reading this is because of Linux. In this case, there are two options: the easy one and the other one. The easy one is to use the new network manager in [k]ubuntu and set the following options:

WPA configuration

However, if you prefer to mess with config files, you need to use this one with wpa_supplicant. It’s out of the scope (yay! ;)) of this post how to automate this…


# default 1, not sure if needed.
eapol_version=2
ap_scan=2
# TUC network
network={
ssid="TUC"
proto=WPA
key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
pairwise=TKIP
group=TKIP
identity="ISC\username"
password="password"
ca_cert="/path/to/wifi.cer"
ca_cert2="/path/to/wifi.cer"
phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
}

The paths to the server certificate should be absolute. Also note the “ISC\” bit before the username; this is mandatory and made me lost some silly time.
