Create Wi-Fi profile for iOS

In the Wi-Fi profile, you can set up your Wi-Fi connection and assign it to the users. Now the users don’t need to log on as the wireless network will be recognised.

  • Select Wi-Fi as the profile that you want to add. The following dia­log will open:

Configuring a Wi-Fi profile

Make the following settings:

  • Profile name: Enter a name for the profile here.
  • Service Set Identifier (SSID): Enter the network name or device number (SSID) of the Wi-Fi hotspot here.
  • Security type: Select the type of Wi-Fi encryption here. Depending on the Wi-Fi encryption used, you can select a predefined SCEP profile or Certificate profile.

Note! If you want to use the certificate profile to distribute a root certificate that was generated with your own certificate authority, you must enter the certificate name in this Wi-Fi profile.
To do this, select the security type WPA/WPA2 Enterprise and enter the certificate name under Trusted server certificate names. Otherwise, users would be asked to agree to the untrusted certificate.

  • Pre-shared key: Enter the Wi-Fi password here. Then the user will not have to enter the password to access the wireless network.
  • Proxy: Here you can make the settings for a proxy server for iOS devices. Select None, if you want to do the configuration without a proxy server. Otherwise, select Manual or Automatic.
  • Enable Auto Join if, after authenticating himself once, the user is always con­nected automatically to the wireless network provided here.
  • Select Hidden Network, if your wireless network is hidden. Then the user has to enter the SSID of the Wi-Fi hotspot to use the wireless network.

You can now assign this profile to the mobile device users. Note that, to do so, Wi-Fi must be enabled on the device.

You’ll find out here how to distribute the new profile (see section Assigning profiles).
