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:
