Symbian based smartphones and EAP-TTLS PAP

A number of people have written asking about errors connecting their brand new Nokia smartphones to their University WLAN.

If your University uses Eduroam then it will use a type of EAP (Extended access protocol) called EAP-TTLS PAP. other types of EAP are EAP-PEAP and EAP-MSCHAPv2 .

This is a problem with Symbian S60 phones including Nokia – they dont support the EAP-TTLS PAP protocol.

Another reason that I decided to get a Windows Mobile 6 Pro phone.

There is even a petition to try and force Nokia to support this protocol..
