Eduroam wifi connection with WICD
 
My university uses eduroam for wifi connectivity.

I've tried to configure WICD to connect to it by creating a template on /etc/wicd/encryption/template containing the following:

Code:

name = eduroam
version = 1
require identity *Identity password *Password
-----

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={

        ssid="eduroam"

        key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
        eap=PEAP
       
        pairwise=CCMP TKIP
   
     
        identity="myidentity@universitydomain"
        anonymous_identity="myidentity@universitydomain"
        password="mypassword"
        phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
     
       
}

But all I get is bad password. Even if I know for sure is correct since it's the same I use for my wired connection at home, accessing computers at lab, etc.

The only instructions available on my university webpage for linux are these
http://uit.no/Content/319311/EDUROAM-Ubuntu.pdf

Any ideas? I've tried several variations of the template file without success and I've also tried to execute wpa_supplicant directly by using the info on the template in wpa_supplicant.conf with no avail.

Googling this suggests that an appropriate template file is:
Code:

name = PEAP with MSCHAPv2
author = ElitestFX
version = 1
require identity *Identity password *Password
-----
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={
        ssid="$_ESSID"
        scan_ssid=$_SCAN
        key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
        eap=PEAP
        phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
        identity="$_IDENTITY"
        password="$_PASSWORD"
}

Have you tested your login on another machine. For eduroam we have to use our full username plus the @uni.ac.uk as the eduroam username. This is different from our email address. So it might be worth checking that you can get in on another machine just in case.
