Unencrypted wifi on campus..


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

Im currently studying computer science on second semester in Denmark.  We have full free wireless coverage on campus.  Nice and convenient right?


First of all, you have to log in through a portal that you will get directed to automatically when you open your browser, and then keep that window open.  Furthermore the connection you then get is UNENCRYPTED. . 

I know that in a situation like this i should just not use it at all, but in some situations i really need internet on campus. 

Im using both windows and unbuntu, but mainly windows. 

Is there anyway i can feel a little more secure when i'm online on campus.

Ok I just woke up and am a little cranky so I'm just gonna start off by calling every one but the OP a noob... now that thats done I can help

if you have a box at home you can use SSH or a VPN to tunnel your traffic though

BSODtv have a video tutorial on setting up the SSH tunnel

however if you have more then a little linux experience you can set up openVPN with redirect-gateway and the configure IPtables to act as a nat
