Sign into PCC’s wireless network

PCC’s wireless network is now called PCC-WiFi. The first time you log in, you will need to follow a few extra steps. Once these steps are completed, you will not have to perform them in the future; you will be automatically connected to PCC’s wireless network when you are within range (unless you have set your device to do otherwise).

For security reasons, you may be asked to verify the certificate server, or server thumbprint/fingerprint:

  • Server: tsscp-1.pcc.edu or tsscp-2.pcc.edu
  • Thumbprint: 72:F3:ED:73:E8:89:DD:F1:94:20:D2:26:5F:3D:B2:7F:AD:2F:35:89

Linux

The hardest part of accessing the PCC-WiFi service from Linux (including Android) is that the configuration interface can vary widely. These settings are general and interface-neutral.  Depending on the client (“supplicant”), when it first interacts with the access point it might fill in some of the needed settings. Again, this can vary. Anything required that isn’t auto-filled must be added by hand.

Here are the settings; they may not appear in this order.

  1. The security mode should be “WPA/WPA2 Enterprise” — the client might display it differently but it should look like this.
  2. The authentication method is protected EAP (PEAP).
  3. The anonymous identity can be left blank or unchanged.
  4. If there’s a “domain” field then it should be set to “pcc.edu”. This is perhaps the easiest setting to get wrong or omit, and some clients won’t work without it.
  5. The PEAP version should be “automatic”.
  6. The inner authentication method should be “MSCHAPv2”.
  7. The user name is the MyPCC user name.
  8. The password is the G number.
