Odyssey Access Client for Laptops/Windows

Odyssey is a product used by major businesses to manage their wifi networks. Therefore, if a computer is used in a business that uses this client, and also at the U of A, a tsunami profile must be set up (it seems to block the regular windows client).

First, create a Profile

  1. Tap [Profile]
  2. Tap [add]
  3. Make the name tsunami to keep things simple
  4. Under login name, put the UAnet ID.
  5. Select the option [prompt for password]
  6. Tap [Authentication]
  7. Remove any types currently in the box, and tap [add]
  8. Add [EAP-PEAP] and then hit [ok]
  9. Make sure that [prompt for token] is selected

Then, setup the network

  1. Tap [Network]
  2. Tap [Add]
  3. Put in tsunami as the SSID
  4. Make sure authentication type is WEP and not Open.
  5. Select the [Authenticate according to profile] option, and select the profile tsunami from the list.
  6. Tap [ok]
  7. Tap [Connection]
  8. Select tsunami and put in the uanet password when prompted.
  9. This last step, in the [Connection] box may have to be repeated each time to get the user online, inform them of this and show them how.
