Uni of Gloucestershire Halls (Connecting a PS4 to Eduroam Wifi)Watch
tl;dr Does anyone know how to connect to the eduroam wifi at Uni of Glos to a playstation 4?
(so that the Uni can check that your device isn't a source of malware etc)
but I had a quick look online, and didn't (yet) find the info for how to add a security profile to PS4
"When you cannot connect to PlayStation™Network
Use PlayStation™Network to connect your PS4™ system to a PlayStation™Network server or to another PS4™ system. When you're using PlayStation™Network at an office or other location with a shared network, a firewall or other security measures might prevent your PS4™ system from connecting to PlayStation™Network. If this occurs, refer to the port numbers listed below, which are used when you connect your PS4™ system to a PlayStation™Network server.
TCP: 80, 443, 3478, 3479, 3480
UDP: 3478, 3479
For online activities such as competing with other players while your system is connected directly to other PS4™ systems, a different port number is used each time you connect.
Communication might be restricted depending on the security functions provided by your router or Internet service provider. Refer to the instructions supplied with the network device in use, and information from your Internet service provider."
So you probably need to become 'best friends' with the IT dept at Gloucs., they might know a way that your uni can place their root certificate on your PS, or not....
can you try and use the built-in web-browser of the PS4, just to access the initial "login" page for eduroam (usually can get this by trying to browse to www.google.com, which will redirect to a captive page, which can often drop the "root cert" onto your device, not sure if your PS4 browser is agile enough to do clever things with a profile.
I think this sony page (with zero answer) might be linked?
hopefully it will be something else and easily solveable?, I know friends using a Switch successfully at uni, but not a PS4
It also won't let you on steam. Try befriending a computer science student to find a way around it.
Unfortunately, just like cheap printers, chromesticks, sonos devices, etc, they do not support this method of Authentication.
This is a challenge for a lot of Universities, effectively they would need to offer an "IoT" style network, which supports passphase but still need to identify whose device is whose, which is an investment and technology challenge.
