Script to automatically login to UpUnet-S at Uppsala University

If you want a small bash, zsh or shell script that auto authenticates you with Uppsala Universities UpUnet-S you can use this simple one liner, just add our username and password and up you go:

curl --data "action=Login" --data "usergroup=UpUnet-S" --data-urlencode "username=YOUR_USERNAME" --data-urlencode "password=YOUR_PASSWORD"

If you are a student at SLU you can try to substitute “usergroup=UpUnet-S” with “usergroup=SLU” and it should work for you as well. It’s untested though.

    Interesting! Is there any way to run this script on an iphone? And like automate it? Like an app? Or maybe in chrome?

      Actually I wrote an iPhone app but never put it in the AppStore since I thought I’d be the only one who would use it.

      In the app you can connect/disconnect and automatically connect on app launch so you don’t even have to click a button. Interested in testing?

    Thanks for the quick curl command, used it a few times to log in to the network.
    However, I have also managed to set up an OpenWRT router and keep a live connection at all times, while my connected devices don’t need to authenticate any further. Internet 24/7, without logins. You can have a look at:
    Share Internet From a Captive Portal with OpenWRT

    Also, is there still an iPhone app? Some friends of mine could surely use it.
