Wi-Fi configuration (iOS device policy)
The Wi-Fi configuration lets you specify settings for connecting to Wi-Fi networks.
|SSID||The name of the Wi-Fi network.|
|Connect automatically||Automatically connect when the Wi-Fi network is available.|
|Hidden network||The Wi-Fi network doesn’t broadcast its SSID.|
|Turn off private address||Join the network using the device’s hardware MAC address instead of a network-specific address created by iOS. |
This setting reduces the connection’s privacy. Only use it if the device must identify itself using the same MAC address across your networks.
Note that Synchronized Security doesn’t work for devices that use a private MAC address. Sophos Central Wireless only knows the private address of a device, while Sophos Mobile only knows the hardware address.
For details on Synchronized Security, see Synchronized Security.
|Security type||The Wi-Fi security method (such as WPA2) and variant (Personal or Enterprise) the device uses.|
|Password||The password for the Wi-Fi network. |
This option is available when you’ve selected a personal security type.
|Protocols||The authentication protocol settings. |
Protocols is available when you’ve selected an enterprise security type.
|Authentication||The client authentication settings. |
Authentication is available when you’ve selected an enterprise security type.
|Trusted certificates||The server certificate. |
Before you can select a certificate, you must add it to the policy with a Root certificate configuration.
Trusted certificates is available when you’ve selected an enterprise security type.
|Proxy||Select Manually to configure the connection details manually. |
Select Automatic if you have a proxy auto-config (PAC) file.
