how to connect to open wifi from terminal

tux john
Hello everyone.
 
 
i do have a wifi card attached to my voyage linux box and i get connected to different WIFIs using the following in /etc/network/interfaces:
auto wlan0                                                                      
iface wlan0 inet static                                                         
        address 192.168.1.49                                                    
        netmask 255.255.255.0                                                   
        broadcast 192.168.1.255                                                 
        gateway 192.168.1.1                                                     
        wpa-ssid "mySSID_whaterver"                                                 
        wpa-psk "myPASSWD_foolala"                                                  
 
 
 
there is a wifi that has SSID:openwifi and it is open to everyone. i have tried to have only the wpa-ssid without wpa-psk but it does not connect. while in android or in windows i get access to the Internet from that wifi. could someone tell me how do i connect from terminal to open WIFIs please?
