Hi Rui,

I've (finally!) gotten around to trying to get the apple devices onto the 
wifi network.

I've looked at the websites you mentioned, but i''m a reluctant to create an 
account and download software to generate an XML text file.

If its not too much trouble, could I ask you to send me an example 
configuration file - after, of course stripping out anything even remotely 
sensitive.  I could then use that as a template and insert my certificate 
information in between the appropriate xml tags.

If thats not easy to achieve, then please do not go to any trouble.  I 
appreciate your response below and i'm sure i'll eventually figure something 

Thanks and regards,

Hi Jasvinder,

iPhone configurator has been indeed deprecated some while ago. It sort half 
worked in iOS 7, and it  finally stopped being useful in iOS 8. At the 
moment, only XCode is useful for that. Apple configurator is used in a 
corporate setting, however last time I checked, it was only supported in a 
handful of countries, and not here in Portugal. Someone more used to it can 

As for the profiles, we are generating them with, because we 
are a university. However you also have available the service for free at for a corporate setting.

Nevertheless, the profiles are essentially text files. So after generating 
the first, you can keep it. I also believe you can download client 
certificates never tried it. You just have to be aware that to download 
profiles or certificates you have to use the native Safari and not other 

I also wrote a tutorial to the Portuguese federation on implementing FR 
2+EAP-TTLS+AD, that I will have to update to FR 3 and make a little more 
presentable to distribute it widely.

Feel free to contact me if you need more ideas about the Apple profiles.

It looks like I posted too soon.

My guide describes how to configure windows and android clients to connect
to a WPA2 Enterprise wifi network.

I had done some research into getting apple devices onto it, and I believed
I had all the information necessary to get ipad's, iphone's and ipod's etc
onto the network.  However, when I sat down to actually do so, I hit
something of a brick wall.

I believed all I needed to do was download a PC application from the apple
website called the iPhone Configuration Utility (or iPCU), and use it to
create a profile which configured the relevant devices wifi connection

It seems however, that the software has been deprecated - it hasn't been
updated in years.  I can find no reference to it on the apple website.  It
seems to have been replaced by an application named Configurator - which is
only available for mac's.

Does anyone know of a way to configure ipad's, iphone's and ipod's wifi
settings, without tools such as iPCU or Configurator?
