WebCT access through your firewall

Tech Computer Center logo

If you are using a firewall to protect your computer against intrusion, you may have difficulty accessing Tech's WebCT server.

Normally you enter WebCT by going to and entering your WebCT ID and WebCT password.

If WebCT returns you to the "Login to WebCT" page without giving you the "You entered an incorrect user name or password" message, your firewall is probably blocking WebCT.

Firewalls operate by blocking access to certain Internet addresses. Each Internet address has two parts:

  1. The IP address (for Internet Protocol) is a set of four numbers separated by periods. The IP address for Tech's WebCT server, for example, is:
  2. The port is a number that selects one service within an IP number. Tech's WebCT server operates on port 443.
