All Barracuda Backup Servers, all firmware versions.


Barracuda Backup Service uses SSHFS to back up data contained on a Unix or Linux server running an SSH daemon. To allow your Backup Server to securely connect to your server, you must use a public key.


Unix / Linux Server

  1. Login to the control panel and add/edit a server attached to the appropriate backup server.
  2. Run the commands listed in the SSHFS Information section. This will list the specific key in use by the backup server.
  3. Open the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file and verify that the PubkeyAuthentication option is set to Yes (you may need to uncomment the line by removing the # preceding it)
  4. Restart the SSH daemon for your changes to take effect.
    # /etc/init.d/sshd restart

Barracuda Backup Web Interface

  1. Select Add Server from the Backup > Data Sources page to add your Linux / Unix server.
  2. Select Server Type Mac OS X / Linux / Unix (SSHFS).
  3. Enter the Username of the user you installed the SSH key for.
  4. Click Save Changes.
