How to Log In to Webhawks.org With a Command Line Interface

Using Terminal (Macintosh OS X):

  1. Launch Terminal. If you are at Cabrillo, you will find it in the Dock. You can also find it in Applications > Utilities.
  2. In the terminal window that appears, type:
    ssh yourusername@webhawks.org
    and then hit return. (Of course, you need to change the above command to use your account name, in place of "yourusername", which will look something like "dm62masmit1234".)
  3. Now you will be prompted to enter your webhawks.org password. Do so, and then hit return.
  4. You should now be logged in.

Using PuTTY (Windows):

  1. Launch PuTTY. If you are at Cabrillo, you will find it in Start > Programs > DM Classes > putty.exe.
    (Note: Windows XP does not come with a terminal program that will work with the webhawks.org server, so you will need to download a program, such as PuTTY, if you are not at Cabrillo. You can download PuTTY, a freeware program, at: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html .)
  2. In the "Protocol" section, select the "SSH" radio button.
  3. In the "Host Name" field, enter "webhawks.org".
  4. Click "Open" to begin your session.
  5. If you see a "Security Alert" window, just click "yes" to continue.
  6. In the terminal window that appears, type:
    yourusername
    and then hit return. (Of course, you need to change the above command to use your account name, in place of "yourusername", which will look something like "dm62masmit1234".)
  7. Now you will be prompted to enter your webhawks.org password. Do so, and then hit return.
  8. You should now be logged in.
