Connecting to Eduroam via Nokia N95

1. Introduction

The following instructions apply to to using the Eduroam wireless service with Nokia N95 mobile phones.

Note that if you're using the original firmware the device came with you may need to upgrade your firmware to the latest version. 11.0.026, 12.0.013, 20.0.015, 21.0.16 and 30.0.015 are confirmed as working. You can check which firmware you're using by dialling *#0000#.

First make sure the root certificate for the authority that signed your radius servers certificate is in the root store of your phone. Oxford uses AddTrust External CA Root as a root. The N95 doesn't actually come shipped with this certificate. To download and configure this appropriately please see:

Navigate to your applications screen, select [Tools], then [Settings].
Next pick [Connection] then [access points] then [new access point].
scroll the n95 screen down
Choose WPA/WPA2 for the WLAN Security Mode then select the [WLAN Security Settings] item.
Choose EAP as the WPA/WPA2 type, Choose WPA2 only mode and make sure it is off, then select the [plugin settings] and press enter
In the EAP plug-in settings enable only EAP-TTLS, disable the other entries enabled by default, then select EAP-TTLS and press [options] then select edit from the sub menu.
Set the Authority Certificate to AddTrust External CA Root
Use the N95s right of the centre button to move on the [EAPs] tab and enable EAP-MSCHAPv2 Only. Do NOT enable mschapv2, the eap-mschap and mschapv2 options are different and the latter will not work.
  In the settings for EAP-MSCHAPv2 provide your remote access username. You can provide your password if you wish, or set it to prompt for it.
Then hit back lots of times until you return to the phone's main screen. Now you should be able to use Eduroam for all the IP based abilities the phone offers. When connecting, check the "connecting via [...]" message is using you expected.
