We describe how to configure an Apple TV to connect to the ETH wireless network.
- Install the Apple Configurator from the AppStore.
- Start the Apple Configurator from your applications.
- Create a new Profile in the menu File -> New Profile.
- Give it a name in the General tab.
- Download and extract the required certificates (valid until January 2022).
- Configure Certificates and select all the
*.cerfiles you just downloaded.
- Configure Wi-Fi according to the screenshot below. Use your personal ETH wifi account for testing purposes. If you want to use an AppleTV for presentations in your group, we can create a dedicated technical account for authentication or help you connect it to the IoT network.
- Make sure to check all certificates in the Trust tab.
- Save the profile. Note that this file contains the Wi-Fi username and password in plaintext.
