[SOLVED] Cisco Network?

Postby lightguy1789 » Mon Sep 22, 2008 9:29 am

I downloaded the app and was excited to see an app of this sort, because my university uses blue socket to use the campus-wide wi-fi network. I have tried any number of things and cannot make it work to log me in----I just get a big red X saying login failed. There is an IP address at the bottom of that screen which verifies that I am actually connected to the network.....

Any help?

Where are you located? UK by any chance?

Try this...

1. wait til your phone or touch is asleep for 20 minutes.

2. Wake it up and hit the Weather widget. The cursor should spin and spin meaning you are not connected.

3. Then hit BlueSocket authenticator. Even if it red x's.

4. Hit the Weather widget again....does it work?

If so it means you actually go authenticated there is a small bug I am fixing which checks whether you are actually connected. A user in the UK helped me diagnose and fix the problem. I am checking http://www.google.com to see if you are authenticated and if http://www.google.com comes back I say success. However in the UK it comes back http://www.google.co.uk so even though it authenticated I am reporting a false error. this will be fixed in 1.2

Also without stating the obvious you double checked the Settings application to make sure you didn't mispell your username and password?

I did try what you said (with the weather widget) and that didn't work. Also-----I have re-entered my login information WAY more times than I care to remember! lol

ALSO---the reason that I know it is not working is because even after I open the BlueSocket app, when I open Safari it still brings me to the login page....

Do me a favor...next time you are on a PC or MAC....hit the BlueSocket login page. Do a View Source and copy the HTML of the login.pl page and email it to me at info@melloware.com or PM it to me. i wonder if your site did something slightly different with the HTTP params.

This has been resolved...the network lightguy1789 is trying to connect to is a Cisco hotspot and not a BlueSocket hotspot. So BlueSocket Authenticator will not work on a Cisco network.

For Cisco Hotspots you can use this application instead....
