RESTENA eduroam access - Setup Instructions (Symbian OS)

Configuring eduroam on WiFi-capable Symbian OS devices is possible, but a rather complicated multi-stage process. Please follow the walk-through below for setting up your eduroam connection. Note: this walk-through uses the German localisation of Symbian OS. Approximate English equivalents are in parenthesis. If you have installed a different language, the screen shots should be self-explanatory.

Installing the CA certificate

  1. Download the "RESTENA Services CA" certificate from this site in format "P12" and transfer it to your phone (e.g. by copying it onto the phone's flash card)
  2. Use the "Dateimanager" (File Explorer) utility, browse to the file and click on it [Screenshot]
  3. You are asked whether you want to save the CA certificate, click on "Speich." (Save)
  4. You are again asked if you want to install the certificate. Only if you have downloaded the file yourself from the web site (as in step 1 above), click "Speich." (Save) again. [Screenshot]

Setting up the WiFi profile

  1. Go to "System" -> "Einstellungen" -> "Verbindung" and select "Zugangspunkte" (System -> Settings -> Connection -> Access Points) [Screenshot]
