Connect to eduroam from a Mac

To help staff and students of the James Hutton Institute connect to the eduroam wireless network, this page provides instructions for connecting from a Mac.

These instructions should be followed whilst onsite at the Aberdeen or Dundee sites of the James Hutton Institute.

Visitors to the James Hutton Institute who wish to use eduroam should have already setup their device based on their home site’s instructions before visiting.

  • Download and open this eduroam profile on your Mac.
  • The profile will open in a “System Preferences – Profiles” window. You can select “Show Profile” to give you further details of this profile.

Install Eduroam on a Mac step one

  • Select “Continue” twice to confirm you want to install the eduroam profile along with the “JHI Roaming Certificate Authority” certificate.
  • When prompted to enter settings for this profile, enter the following and click on the “Install” button:
    Username: Your Hutton username with @hutton.ac.uk on the end. For example if your hutton username is normally aa40123 you would enter aa40123@hutton.ac.uk. Entering your email address or your username without @hutton.ac.uk will not work.
    Password: Your Hutton password.

Install Eduroam on a Mac step two

  • You may be asked to enter your username and password for your Mac, and then after a few seconds the profile will complete installing and you should connect to eduroam. You can now close the “System Preferences – Profiles” window.

If you have entered your username or password incorrectly you will be prompted to enter your username (shown as “Account Name”) and password again. Make sure that your username is entered as described above with @hutton.ac.uk on the end, and confirm your password is correct by entering it again.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
