Maybe the eduroam Configuration Assistance Tool (CAT) is worth
mentioning. It supports Windows, Apple iOS, Apple OS X, Android & Linux
clients. Haven't used it myself, but it's under active development by
the eduroam community.


*if* you are an eduroam member.  if not, there is the alternative http://802.1x-config.org/

other commercial tools that have wider platform support include XpressConnect and XpressConnect SE
from Cloudpath - now Brocade/ruckus,  Aruba Clearpass onboarding and SecureW2

however, the initial question is client configuration. the client needs to be configured properly...if not, the initial host/username jun will be rejected...the client may then ask the user to try logging in - 
a basic OS/client method is pretty much ask user to trust RADIUS server presented (most users just click yes/okay) and then ask for credentials... not too good at all. proper configuration by profile deployment
is much better
