Settings - Wireless Profiles

Managing wireless profiles

Through the NetBeez Settings, you can add and manage wireless network profiles for use by the wireless agents.

 

To access the Wireless Profiles tab:

  1. Open Settings by clicking on the gray cog icon in the upper right
  2. Click on the Wireless Profiles tab

In Wireless Profiles you can:

Add a Wireless Profile

Select Add Profile.  Enter the wireless network's SSID, select the applicable security type, and provide the necessary key.  If the wireless network uses WPA/WPA2-EAP encryption, you will also need to select the EAP Method and provide necessary identities, keys, and/or certificates (keys and certificates have to be in PEM format).

Edit a Wireless Profile

Select the wireless profile you wish to edit and input any new profile information.

Delete a Wireless Profile

When you hover a profile tab, a red delete icon will appear.  Click on this icon to delete the profile.  There is no confirmation screen for wireless profile deletions.

Push a wireless profile to an agent

Now it's time to connect your agent to the newly created wireless profile. Follow this procedure.

Wireless EAP profiles

PEM versus DER formats - When using wireless profiles that require certificates, please make sure that the certificate is in PEM format. You can quickly check that because if you open the certificate with a text editor you see it's in text format (BEGIN/END CERTIFICATE). If your certificate is in DER format, which is a binary format, you have to convert it in PEM format, otherwise the wireless profile won't be successfully propagated to the agent. Please use the following openssl command to convert a certificate in DER format to PEM format:

openssl x509 -inform der -in certificate.cer -out certificate.pem

CA certificates - Please make sure to include the full chain of certificates authorities (CA) certificates, including the top CA and any intermediate ones.
