The Third Party system is used to create an account - a username and password - with specified rights to access certain services i.e. email account and network services.
Once captured, the account is ready within a matter of minutes. Often you know ahead of time that you will be receiving a visitor, so ask them to send you all the information that you need in order to capture them onto the Third Party system before they arrive. This way the account will be ready from the moment they arrive on campus. After six months a third party's access can be renewed on the Third Party System by an authorised user.
Should you have an account that needs to be created, please mail your request to the Law 3rd party data capturer.
* A third party is neither a UCT staff member (T1, T2 and T3 contract staff and permanent staff) nor a registered student.
* The third party account is valid for a period not exceeding six months. After that time, it can be renewed by the issuing department if necessary.
* The third party account is not to be used as an alternative to a valid staff or student account.

Wired network access
If access is required to the wired network, i.e. from a network point, then the person needs to register their MAC address by logging a call with the IT Helpdesk. This is a separate process to the Third party account creation process. If you know what your visitor's computer MAC address is before they arrive, you can log a call before they even get here. The visitor will then also need to install the Novell network client software onto their computer in order to connect to the network - making this a slightly more tedious task and making wireless access a more attractive option. For information on how to connect to the wired network, see:
Apple Mac and Linux - Connecting to the UCT file services cluster - Apple Mac and Linux
Secure wireless network
If access is required to the wireless network, then no MAC address registration is required. However, the person does need to follow some setup instructions on how to enable their laptop to access the secure wireless network. For more information on how to connect to the wireless network, see: Connect to the wireless network.
Please inform your visitor of the log in process required by ISA. They need to use their username followed by @wf.uct.ac.za and their password. These credentials can be saved in the browser to prevent having to type them in each time a new session is started. For more information on how to access the Internet via ISA, see: Access the Internet via ISA.
