How to remove the Eduroam profile.


Install Eduroam for UGent staff and students

  1. Change your password (once)

    If your account was granted before May 1, 2013 and you haven't changed your password since then, you should first change your password (using the form at https://password.ugent.be/ sleutel-icoon).

  2. How do I connect?

    Select the 'eduroam' network and enter your login name@ugent.be or e-mailaddress and your UGent password when asked
    (DO NOT FORGET "@ugent.be").

  3. Certificate message

    The first time you connect, the question whether you trust the certificate that is presented by the network appears. This is a normal security question. The certificate is TERENA SSL CA 3. The "radius server" is ugnps.UGent.be.

    Accept the certificate.
