About the eduroam Roaming Service
The University of Plymouth is participating in the eduroam Roaming Service
which has developed from Location Independent Networking (LIN)
This provides an infrastructure for guest users to use their home network
unique credentials to gain authenticated independent network access at
visited JANET connected organisations, without any administrative burden or
added complexities - both for the user and the local IT staff. The guest user
can then use whatever remote access facilities are provided by their own
organisation and whatever facilities are offered by the visited organisation.
JANET Roaming is part of the eduroam federation (www.eduroam.org) in
which the UK, 22 other European countries, Australia and Taiwan have
collaborated to provide international RADIUS proxy authentication facilities.
These pages provide setup instructions for guest users using a laptop PC with
Windows XP with Service Pack 2.
