  1. 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").

  2. 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.
