Step 1: Open CAT website and download installation

Go to the website cat.rz.htw-berlin.de. Your operating system will be detected automatically. Then click on the large blue field with the name of your operating system. On the following website, a Python file will automatically be offered for download. Please download it and remember the download folder.


Note: If your device cannot use mobile data, you can use the open Wi-Fi "HowToUseEduroam" at the HTW location to access the website. Alternatively, the setup can also be done in your home Wi-Fi.

Step 2: Open terminal and install Python profile

Call up the "Terminal" tool via the program overview. Use the command "cd" to change to the directory where you saved the Python script from step 1 of this manual. Then start the installation of the eduroam setup with the command "python3 eduroam-linux-eduroam-htw-berlin.py".
