HOW TO: Install Eduroam on Linux Machines

HOW TO INSTALL EDUROAM ON LINUX MACHINES

These instructions assume the Gnome desktop shipped with many common Linux distributions.  To join eduroam with the Gnome windowing system you must configure the NetworkManager with an eduroam profile.  When asked for your credentials provide your username@clemson.edu.  Your password is your normal password used for Canvas and iRoar.

 

CREATING AN EDUROAM PROFILE

  • Open the NetworkManager, select the Wireless tab and click Add
  • In the dialog that appears change the Connection Name to eduroam
  • You may opt to check the Connect automatically check box.
  • The SSID should be eduroam and the Mode should be set to Infrastructure
  • Next select the Wireless Security tab.

 

IN THE WIRELESS SECURITY TAB THERE ARE MANY SETTINGS TO CONFIGURE          

  •   In the Security drop-down box select WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
  •   In the Authentication drop-down menu select PEAP
  •   Leave the Anonymous identity box empty
  •   Leave the PEAP version drop-down set to Automatic
  •   In the Inner authentication drop-down select MSCHAPv2
  •   Finally provide your username@clemson.edu and password
  •   Once you have finished click on Apply      

 

Note: After these settings are configured, you should be able to connect by clicking on Connect in the following dialog.  In the future,  you can connect via the Network Manager icon in the task bar. 

 

If you have more questions, email ITHELP@clemson.edu or call 864-656-3494.
