My answer was unclear.

The group name and group password are not related in any way to the login, 
password or pre shared key.

In other words, you need to ask your admins for some personal credentials 
(login, password, token or whatever is supported) and, in addition, a group 
name and a group password.

The group name and group password are the same for every user of the group. 
That's the reason you need your own login/password and they must not be the 
same as the group name and password which are shared by every user in the 
group.
