Viewing Webtest Pages

Brandeis has two servers: Live and Test.

Wormhole is Brandeis’ virtual private network. Logging into wormhole.brandeis.edu with your UNet ID and password allows you to view webtest pages from off campus.

Viewing Webtest Pages On Campus

  1. Open a web browser and type in the webtest URL you would like to view.
    For example, http://webtest.brandeis.edu/psychology would bring you to the Psychology Department site on webtest.
  2. You can interact with the webtest pages just like you would a live website.

Viewing Webtest Pages Off Campus

  1. From off campus, open a web browser and navigate to wormhole.brandeis.edu. Login with your UNet ID and password.
  2. A welcome screen will appear. At the top-right of the screen, you will see an empty white box with a Browse button next to it. This is the Browse Field. The Browse Field enables you to navigate to a variety of resources through a secure session, including webtest pages.
  3. In the Browse Field, type in the webtest URL you would like to view.

    For example, http://webtest.brandeis.edu/psychology would bring you to the Psychology Department site on webtest.

  4. Once you have entered the webtest URL, click Browse.
  5. A new window will open with the webtest page you entered. You can interact with the webtest pages just like you would on campus.

Note: The URL that appears in the address bar when viewing a webtest link from within Wormhole (see screenshot below) is unique to Wormhole. Do not copy the URL and use it on your website. This will result in broken links. Information on how to create links is available in the Building & Editing section.
