    Windows 8 mobile and 802.1x BYOD

    Hi Folks

    We have set up a BYOD WLAN on our Ruckus system using Smoothwall as a RADIUS and DHCP server. This is working fine for all our devices except the lone Windows 8 Mobile device we have (MS Surface RT). It will connect to the WLAN and prompt for credentials and then issue a message about a certificate. Clicking continue brings up a message saying that it cannot connect the WLAN and that's it.

    Has anyone got a similar setup that works with W8 mobile devices? I have Google'd the problem but it hasn't been a lot of help.

    Thanks

    Steve

    Are you using self signed certificates, you may need to send the root cert to the surface and install it by importing it into trusted root stores so it will accept it. Some other devices may do this automatically or simply ignore the security violation like the consumer grade stuff they are.

    It may well be that although according to Smoothwalls own website, it shouldn't be. It certainly is the case for Windows 7 computers. Its a shame nothing in life - or rather IT, is simple!
