Logins and Passwords for Cabrillo Courses

You have three different logins (sometimes called user names, or login names) and passwords:

Remember that computer logins and passwords are usually case-sensitive.


The temporary generic Cabrillo networklogin and password

This is the login and password — which will only work for the first two weeks of the semester (or, in summer, for the first couple of days of the term) — you enter when you first sit down in front of a computer on campus, such as any computer in a classroom or in the CTC (the computer lab). You can use this temporary login and password to gain access to the Cabrillo network until you get your personal Cabrillo network login and password.

The temporary generic Cabrillo network login (for spring 2017) is: spring17
The temporary generic Cabrillo network password (for spring 2017) is: welcome


Your Cabrillo student ID number

Your student ID number is a 7-digit number found on your registration receipt. It is not your Social Security number. You will need to know your student ID number to know your Cabrillo network login.

My Cabrillo student ID number is: ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___  ___


Your Cabrillo student networklogin and password

This is the login and password you enter when you first sit down in front of a computer on campus. This grants you access to the programs available to you as a student, depending on what courses you are enrolled in. This also gives you Internet access.

Your login name is made up of the first two letters of your first name, followed by the first four letters of your last name, followed by the last four digits of your 7-digit student ID number. The letters are all lowercase. For example, the Cabrillo network login name for Mary Johnson (who has a student ID number of “1234567”) would be “majohn4567”.

Your password is chosen by you when you run the "lookup" program (as explained below).

You will have only one Cabrillo network login and password, regardless of how many courses you are taking this term.

During the first two weeks of classes (or the first two days of a 6-week summer session), there is a temporary generic login and password that everyone can use to get access to the Cabrillo network. But when this generic login stops working, you will need to use your individual login and password.

How to get your Cabrillo student network login and password:

If you are on campus:

  1. Sit in front of a computer on campus.
  2. Log in using the temporary generic login and password (see above).
  3. Open a Web browser, and in the browser’s address bar (where you would normally enter a URL) enter: “lookup” (without the quotes).
  4. The lookup program will prompt you for your last name, birthdate, and student ID number. (Your student ID number is a 7-digit number found on your registration receipt. It is not your Social Security number.)
  5. The lookup program will also ask you to create a password, and to type this password in again. The password you create must be a minimum of six alphanumeric characters (letters and numbers). it is case-sensitive.
  6. When you create your login and password, write it down!
  7. You can always change your password through the lookup program.

Your webhawks.org (FTP)login and password

This is the login and password you enter into an FTP program (such as Fetch or CoreFTP) to connect to the webhawks.org server, allowing you to upload files to, or download files from, the server.

If you are taking more than one course this term that uses the webhakws.org server, you will have a different webhawks.org login and password for each course.

If you have added the course late with an add code, your webhawks.org account will not be created until a day or two after you process the add code.

How to get your webhawks.org login and password:

  1. First follow the directions above to get your Cabrillo student network login and password.
  2. If you do not know your Webhawks login (user name) for the class, here is how to determine your user name:
    1. Your Webhawks user name is made up of your course number and your student network login. First it starts with the Cabrillo course number (for example, “dm60”, “dm61”, or “dm62”). Next it contains your student network login. Your Webhawks login contains no spaces, and is case sensitive (all letters must be lowercase).
    2. For example, the Webhawks user name for Mary Johnson in the DM60 class would be “dm60majohn1234” (if her student network login is "majohn1234").
  3. If you do not know your Webhawks password for the class, here is how to determine your password:
    1. Your Webhawks password is your birthdate as six numbers in mmddyy format.
    2. For example, if your birthdate is February 5, 1989, your Webhawks password would be “020589”.

My Cabrillo webhawks.org password is: _____________________________________

How to determine your personal homepage URL on webhawks.org:

  1. The URL (Web address) of your homepage on the webhawks.org server is determined by your Webhawks login (user name).Your URL will start with "http://webhawks.org/~" and then end with your Webhawks login.
  2. For example, the Webhawks user name for Mary Johnson in the DM60 class, whose student ID number ends in 1234, would be “dm60amajohn1234”. So her homepage URL would be "http://webhawks.org/~dm60majohn1234/" (the slash at the end is optional).

My Cabrillo webhawks.org homepage URL is:

http://webhawks.org/~______________________________________________________________


Put these settings into your FTP program to connect to the webhawks.org Web server:

Server name/Host: webhawks.org

Login/User name (same as webhawks.org login): _____________________________________

Password (same as webhawks.org password): _____________________________________

Protocol: SFTP or SSH

Leave all other settings blank or leave the defaults as is.


Your discussion forumlogin (user name) and password

This is the login and password you enter when you wish to post to the discussion forum (the online message board). Note that this is not to be confused with a Canvass Blackboard account which, if you have one, is completely separate. John’s classes do not use Blackboard.

You will have only one discussin forum login and password, regardless of how many courses you are taking from John this term. You only need to create your forum account once.

How to register for discussion forum to create your login and password:

  1. Note that this process to create an account on the discussion forum will only work when the instructor has unlocked the forum; if you get a message that says the user name that you chose is not allowed, the forum is locked to prevent unauthorized accounts from being created.
  2. Go to the discussion forum home page at http://teacherjohn.com/phpbb. click on the link near the top right of the page that says “Register” and you will be taken to the “Registration Agreement terms” page. After you agree to the terms you will be taken to the registration form.
  3. Fill out the registration form. You will be asked to create a user name and a password, and to enter your email address. (You may leave the Profile Information section blank, and may leave the Preferences section as it is for now.) You must use your real first name and last initial for your user name so that I can tell who you are (if I don't know who you are, I can't give you credit for participating). Your user name (but not your password) can contain a space (such as “Mary S”). Your user name is the only thing you cannot change once your account is created; all the other information can be changed later, if you wish. You will be asked to type your password twice, to make sure you have made no errors. You must also supply a valid email address. If you do not use your real first name and last initial for your user name, your user account may be deleted and you will have to set it up again. More likely, I will change your user name.
  4. Write down your user name and password — exactly as you created them, including any capitals, as they are case-sensitive.
  5. After you click on the “Submit” button, you will be taken back to the welcome page.
  6. Go back to the discussion forum home page at http://teacherjohn.com/phpbb, click on the link near the top right of the page that says "Log in" and then enter your user name and password.
