Ultimaker S3 cannot connect to Enterprise WiFi


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker S3 cannot connect to Enterprise WiFi

Hi there,

 

Is there any way to connect the S line to WPA2 Enterprise WiFi? That is, WiFi that requires a username and password? Perhaps I'm just missing something, but the option to add a username just doesn't seem available through any of the automatic or manual setup options. Just entering my password without a username fails to connect. But I do know that WiFi works, because I can connect to my WPA2 Personal network at home.

 

If connecting to Enterprise WiFi is not possible, is it an option that can be added? Seems like a pretty big missing feature for larger organisations that doen't just have a simple WiFi setup.

 

[EDIT] Should add, my S3 is running the 6.1.1 firmware.

 

Thanks!

    As far as I know it is not possible yet to use 802.1x with the printer.

    But maybe with the new manual setup via config file, it will come in the future.

    On the other hand, it could be possible. Not tested, just checked the parameters of the config file.


    Checkout the general description here:

    https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018123920

     

    And then the manual of the parameters which are possible:

    https://manpages.debian.org/testing/connman/connman-service.config.5.en.html

     

    So when you try it with

     

    Security=ieee8021x

    EAP=tls | ttls | peap (whatever you need)

    Identity=username

    Passphrase=password

     

    But checkout also the other parameters in the documentation, because you need more parameters in the file.

    Oh, that's outstanding. I thought the config file feature in the new firmware would be helpful, but the template didn't have the right fields. I didn't follow the deeper link explaining the full capabilities of Debian.

     

    I'll give it a shot and report back. Thanks so much!

    And they actually have an example file for eduroam, which is perfect given my university setting. Outstanding.

    Yep, so I did manage to get it working! This was my config file:

     

    [service_wifi]

    Type = wifi

    Name = *SSID name*

    Passphrase = *my password*

    EAP = peap

    Phase2 = MSCHAPV2

    Identity = *my username*
