Configuring WAP (WPA Enterprise) on N97-Mini

My university has wireless network all over but i am unable to configure it on my N97 Mini. I am going to post the steps that uni has given us to configure on laptop, can you guys help me?


from control panel > network > manage networks

1: Manually Create Network Profile
2: In Next window these are the inputs

- <network name>
- Security Type:WPA Enterprise
- Encryption Type: TKIP
- Security Key: <blank for the moment>

3: In next step, Change the connection Settings

From security tab, Microsoft: Protected EAP is selected and then from it's settings, Validate server certificate is disabled.

Could you please guys help me out?

Thanks

P.S: i have even tried to configure it after reading a tutorial posted on nokia forums, but i always get EAP-PEAP authentication failed. could someone help me?

The problem is most likely an issue with the Certifcate Authority on your network (especially if they went tight-a$$ed with a not-so-well-known certificate provider or generated their own). I have had similar issues to our setups and resolved if you can get your hands on an importable public certificate (in binary format - DER) for the CA. Import this into your phone by running it from file manager and accept it into all areas. Once this is done, you should be able to decrypt the WPA properly enough to start the PEAP handshaking.

If you have problems with your certificate (or if it is an ASCII CER format), then you can go to this site to convert it to DER:

https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-converter.html

Make sure you put your AD details in properly (including the domain\username for the username) should work from there.

Eduroam?

If it is Eduroam, then the N97 mini should work as my N97 has been using Eduroam for a around 18 months now and my N95 before that.

auto proxy config url

Could anybody please guide me on how to set the automatic proxy config url as available in mozilla/ie in my symbian phone?

My campus network needs this to connect to the internet. Without this I can connect only to the intranet in my phone.
