Handleiding Linux

Wireless Installation Manual for Linux


  1. Certificate:
    UNtil early 2007 one had to import the C&CZ root-certificate. This is no longer necessary, because C&CZ bought though SURFnet a GlobalSign certificate, which is trusted normally (with Certificate Authority "GTE CyberTrust Global Root").
  2. wpa_supplicant settings:

    The following works with Ubuntu-dapper with gnome, and network-manager and wpasupplicant installed. (sudo apt-get install wpasupplicant network-manager network-manager-gnome). I assume it also works for KDE, etc. In the task bar you will see an applet for the network on the right side. Click on the icon, then the available wireless networks will appear. Click on 'Science'. You will get a form. Fill in the following fields:
Wireless security: WPA-enterprise
EAP method: PEAP
Key-type: automatic
Identity: (FNWI username)
Password: (FNWI password)
CA certificate file: browse to cacert.crt, or where the standard certificate bundle may be on your computer.
Click: Login to network. Wait a moment and the connection will be established. 
If that doesn't work you can make a file wpa_supplicant.conf with the contents: ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant network={ ssid="Science" proto=WPA key_mgmt=WPA-EAP eap=PEAP pairwise=TKIP identity="username" password="password" ca_cert="/etc/certs/ca.pem or where the standard certificate bundle may be on your computer" phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2" # priority=10 } Change in this file username and password to your own username and password. Move this file to the directory where network script can be found (for SUSE this is /etc/sysconfig/network, for Ubuntu it is /etc/network). Add the next line to your ifcfg file for your wireless interface. Of course you have to change the directory if you don't use SUSE.
WIRELESS_WPA_CONF='/etc/sysconfig/network/wpa_supplicant.conf'
  1. Connect to the network:
   ifup eth1
