WLAN with "eduroam" at the European University Viadrina
The “eduroam” network connection gives students and staff at the Viadrina University wireless access to the Internet. Furthermore in scientific institutions which are part of the eduroam network program it is possible to use the eduroam network not only in Europe, but also in many other countries in the World.
Users get access to the eduroam network in seminar rooms, lecture halls and also in public areas, including AB, AM, CP, GD, HG, LH, PG and IBZ. Please note that eduroam network access in office rooms was not intended.
The eduroam network authentication is realized by 802.1x EAP/WPA2-Enterprise with EAP-TTLS or EAP-PEAP protocols. To make the connection work, you have to accept the root certificate of the German Telekom „Deutsche Telekom Root CA 2“. Please download the certificate manually from "http://www.telesec.de/pki/roots.html" if the connection is refused.
The eduroam user login consists of username followed by @europa-uni.de:
Example for student: firstname.lastname@example.org
Example for employee (Paul Meier) email@example.com
(Please note: The eduroam user account differs from your Email address. It is not firstname.lastname@example.org in this case!)
