-As HITS has a domain name (h-its.org) which is not part of the normal German domain hierarchy (.de), the other member institutions have to implement the so-called [[https://​wiki.terena.org/​display/​H2eduroam/​DNS-NAPTR|Dynamic Discovery]] in order to properly route the authentication requests for HITSters - this is known to work in most European institutions. If Dynamic Discovery is not implemented at the visiting ​institution,​ it is not possible to reach the HITS authentication server, the authentication requests will remain unanswered, and therefore the access to the eduroam network to be rejected. Unfortunately this is a decision made at the visiting ​institution and there is nothing that can be done about it elsewhere.+As HITS has a domain name (h-its.org) which is not part of the normal German domain hierarchy (.de), the other member institutions have to implement the so-called [[https://​wiki.terena.org/​display/​H2eduroam/​DNS-NAPTR|Dynamic Discovery]] in order to properly route the authentication requests for HITSters - this is known to work in most European institutions.
