Default WiFI Settings

Please Login to Remove!

Can BES push WiFI settings down to Handhelds? Could I push credentials down to the handheld for WIFI? Maybe using software policie or something?

Any info would help.

Yes you can, IT policy is what you want to look at.

You can, but if using PEAP security, you have to manually sync the certificates.

I have all of my settings in the IT Policy and they come down just fine, but the cert on PEAP is killing me. On the first few revs of WiFi software during the 7270 beta, it didn't care. If it couldn't validate the cert against a CA, it just asked you if it was OK. Now it fails. I suppose that is great from a security perspective, but our CA isn't on our devices.

I am playing with the idea of creating a software package with the CA in it and pushing that down to the device. Anyone else have any luck with that direction?
