WiFi: Automatic configuration

DFN-Verein offers an automatic configuration tool for most operating systems, the Configuration Assistant Tool (CAT). The recommended security settings (certificates and host name of the authentication server) are set automatically.

Enter the data of your WiFi account during configuration:

  • Username: <Login name of WiFi account> (e.g. mj30xoxolan00@tu-darmstadt.de)
  • Password: <Password to WiFi account>

This is how you get WiFi accounts

WiFi accounts are created and also managed in the IDM portal. For more information, see the instructions for creating and managing personal WiFi accounts (opens in new tab).
