eduroam Profile for iOS
Please use eduroam Devicemanager to generate eduroam credentials for every device in use! You will find a tutorial here. You'll need them to authenticate in step 3.
Please note that login names generated with the help of eduroam Devicemanager will end with @rwth.edufi.de for members of the RWTH Aachen University and with @fzj.edufi.de for the members of the FZ Jülich.
You can continue to access the RWTH-institutes Wi-Fi network using a login name that ends with @rwth-aachen.de.
