The UU has changed certain settings of the Eduroam wireless network.
And this change causes a problem with my Nokia E71
The change to the network includes a change in the certificate which has a different root certificate.
I tried installing the AddTrust External CA Root
certificate in the
phone. It took me a while to find what the correct
a certificate is: it has to be a DER format
certificate and mime-type
. To convert the certificate from
the usual pem form I had to use:
openssl x509 -in AddTrust_External_CA_Root.pem -outform der -out AddTrust_External_CA_Root.crt
And download that .crt into the phone using the system browser. But even when
I select that certificate for verifying the Eduroam network it fails at the
Support had one look at the phone and decided to update the firmware first
before trying to get eduroam running.
Updated firmware now gives me a working connection.
