Manual Set Up

These settings only apply to students and employees of the TUHH. Students of other universities please use the settings of their university, also with us at the TUHH.

Existing settings can be edited by long pressing the "eduroam" network name, when the network is in range in the wireless settings. This allows you to update your password (or certificate, domain and anonymous identity as part of the network change) without having to re-enter anything else.
  1. We recommend to install the certificate:
    1. Please connect to the internet. Use your Wi-Fi at home or connect to "VPN/WEB" at the TUHH.
    2. If a window with the webvpn opens automatically, please close it. Then open the webvpn in the web browser of your choice at: https://webvpn.rz.tuhh.de/ and log in.
    3. Click on WLAN-Service der TUHH and then on manual setup for all versions under Android.
    4. Download the "Root Certificate DFN-Verein Community Root CA 2022" onto your device.
    5. Use the following settings to install the certificate:
      • Certificate name: DFN-Verein Community Root CA 2022

    6. Detailed instructions on how to install the certificate on Android can be found here: https://www.tuhh.de/rzt/en/netze/wlan/downloads#ZertAndroid.

    If the certificate cannot be downloaded or the message This certificate is already installed. appears, please use the Google Chrome web browser to download the certificate file.
