9.0.1 Release Notes

  • Last updated on

Important Announcements and Notes

Read this section before you continue with the Release Notes below.

Outdated technical features are subject to removal to keep the CloudGen Firewall up to date and performing properly. See the following two paragraphs for the features that will be removed in this release and the features that are subject to removal in upcoming releases.

Certain features will be removed completely because they have become technically obsolete; other features have become outdated and will be replaced by improved technology.

CloudGen Access Proxy

When updating HA systems with CloudGen Access Proxy enabled, you must reconfigure the proxy to generate a new enrollment URL. For more information, see  CloudGen Access Proxy.

Features That Will Become Obsolete in an Upcoming Release

Virus Scanning with ClamAV

The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall Virus Scanner supports the Avira virus scanning engine. The virus scanner ClamAV will become obsolete with the upcoming firmware release 9.1.0. ClamAV will then be completely removed from the firewall!

It is recommended to use only the Avira virus scanner and to disable ClamAV.

Note that until the final removal of ClamAV, the firewall will start the service; however, the service will be highlighted with a warning notifying the customer about the deprecation.


Also, an appropriate event will be created:


Use the Appropriate Firewall Admin Release

Barracuda Networks recommends using the latest version of Firewall Admin for a new firmware release.

As of the public availability of firmware 9.0.1, Barracuda Networks recommends using at least Firewall Admin version 9.0.1. You can download this version here:

Unlike in firmware 9.0.0 where Firewall Admin 9.0 no longer displayed GTI for firmware versions earlier than 9.0, this limitation has been removed as of this release 9.0.1. Firewall Admin now displays GTI for Control Centers < = 8.3.

However, because WANopt is no longer supported, note that Firewall Admin now ignores all WANopt settings from GTI regardless of the version.

In case of upcoming hotfixes that resolve known issues for Barracuda Firewall Admin, you can find the corresponding notes for the updated version(s) in this info box.


Different Python Versions on Former Firmware Releases

Python scripts accompany every firmware release and control the migration process from one firmware to a newer version. Because the Python system is also distributed in different versions at certain times, the CloudGen Python scripts as part of a new CloudGen firmware also vary over time.

If you are operating firmware 8.0.x and want to migrate your firewall to firmware 9.0.1, you must first update from firmware 8.0.x to 8.3.2. Then, you can continue to upgrade from firmware 8.3.2 to 9.0.1.

If you are operating firmware 8.2.x - 9.0, you can directly migrate to firmware 9.0.1.

For details and more information, see the 9.0.1 Migration Notes.

Release Notes

Firmware version 9.0.1 is a minor release.

Before installing the new firmware version:

Do not manually reboot your system at any time during the update unless otherwise instructed by Barracuda Networks Technical Support. Upgrading can take up to 60 minutes.

To keep our customers informed, the "Known Issues" list and the release of hotfixes resolving these known issues are now updated regularly. If there are intermediate updates to this release, the corresponding notes will be found in this info box.

EoL and EoS Status

For information on which devices and services have reached EoL or EoS status, see:

What's New in Version 9.0.1

Resizable View for Box Licenses

The view for listing the box licenses no longer is static and now provides the option to resize the columns and thus the size of the overall view.

For more information, see 9.0.1 Release Notes for Barracuda Firewall Admin, Release 9.0.1-120, November 2023.

Simplified Traffic Shaping

The number of default shaping connectors available for out-of-the-box traffic management has been reduced to four: High,  Medium, and Low with a bandwidth ratio of 4:2:1, and Realtime.

For more information, see Traffic Shaping.

Configurable Memory Monitoring

The configuration area for performance like CPU load, hardware, and disk has been extended and now contains a section for configuring memory monitoring.

For more information, see How to Configure CPU Load, Hardware, Disk, and Memory Monitoring.

Linking a Repository to a Default Box Node

As of firmware 9.0.1, it is possible to link a repository node to its name-related Default Box node. This option increases the speed of configuring a larger number of firewalls based on commonly used settings. Settings that are less used can still be configured individually with little effort.

For more information, see Example - How to Link a Cluster/Global Repository Node to a Default Box Node.

New Binary File Format for PAR Files

The list of former PAR file types has been extended and now contains a new, binary-encoded file type with the suffix .ppe

For more information, see How to Back Up and Restore Firewall, Secure Access Controller, and Control Center Configurations.

General Term Replacement of SSL Inspection to TLS Inspection

The term SSL has been replaced by the more appropriate term TLS at all relevant places in the user interface. All related articles have been updated accordingly.

Dedicated Configuration Section for Global Inbound Mode Limits

Because the global inbound mode settings do not need a firmware or service restart to take effect, the configuration section can now be accessed via the path CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Infrastructure Services > General Firewall Settings.

Former Section for Settings

New Section for Settings


This section no longer requires a restart of the host firewall service to take effect.

For more information, see General Firewall Configuration, paragraph Global Inbound Mode Limits.

Naming of Network Objects

The former naming of Network Pool Object has been changed and is now called Pool Object.


For more information, see Network Objects and How to Create a Pool Object.

Additional SSD for Logging

The F1000b model allows inserting an additional SSD/HDD into the extension slot on the front of the housing.

Licensing, Pool Licenses

Previously, pool licenses could be managed only on a global level in a Control Center. As of firmware release 9.0.1, pool licenses can be configured so that administrators are allowed to handle them on a range or cluster level. To allow administrators with a specific scope to view and assign pool licenses within their range/cluster, global administrators must define the range/cluster for each pool license.

For more information, see How to Allow Administrators with a Limited Scope to Use Pool Licenses.

VPN Site-to-Site High-Performance Settings Enabled by Default

CloudGen Firewalls operating with multiple CPUs generally provide higher performance. When using VPN TINA tunnels, the higher hardware performance of multiple CPUs can provide a better transmission rate on TINA tunnel transports.

The option High Performance Settings is therefore enabled by default for CloudGen Firewalls operating with multiple CPUs for VPN TINA tunnel transports.


Updates to Policy Profiles

In URL Filtering Policies, the actions Alert and Warn and Continue are now available. Their functionality is the same as in URL Filter Policy Objects for CGFs with Application Rules enabled.


SafeSearch Enforcement is now available for CGFs in Policy Profiles mode and can be selected in the URL Filtering Policies.


For this setting to take effect, the corresponding URL Filtering rule must match traffic to search engines. In addition, TLS Inspection must be enabled.

Supported search engines:

  • Google

  • Yahoo

  • Bing

  • YouTube

  • DuckDuckGo (new in 9.0.1, also for CGF with app rules)

The new setting for Silent Blocking only affects the Secure Edge Agent. If it is enabled, no pop-up messages are shown when the gateway blocks a request from the agent based on this rule.

This setting is only available if the action for the rule is set to Block.


For more information on URL filtering policies, see URL Filtering Policies.

Additions to Security Settings

The Webmonitor feature allows the monitoring and logging of search engine queries for certain keywords. If a user searches for a term marked as monitored:

  • a firewall event is generated

  • a logline in Assigned Services / <Firewall Service> / web monitor is created

Four categories of monitoring keywords are already predefined. The administrator can configure additional keywords. For this feature to work, TLS Inspection must be enabled. The supported search engines are the same as for SafeSearch.


For more information, see How to Configure Web Monitoring Policies.

Version Information for Protocols RDP and VNC

The display of the protocols RDP and VNC now includes information on the protocol version.




SMTPS for System Notification

Sending system notifications now supports SMTPS.


For more information, see How to Configure System Email Notifications.

  • Barracuda OS – If a QoS profile has been created and assigned to a physical interface, this profile will be automatically overwritten by the simple QoS band when performing an HA failover or deleting the VPN tunnel assigned to this physical interface.    [BNNGF-90831]

  • Barracuda OS – Special characters are not processed correctly when using the RADIUS authentication scheme.    [BNNGF-90980]

  • Barracuda OS – After updating to firmware 9.0.1, the guest ticketing no longer saves guest tickets.    [BNNGF-93071]

  • Barracuda OS – GRE tunnels are not properly working.    [BNNGF-93215]

  • Control Center – After updating a Control Center to 9.0.1 and rolling out users for OTP, no email is sent out.    [BNNGF-92695]

  • Firewall – Inspecting traffic for QUIC/UDP 443 is currently not supported.    [BNNGF-74540]

  • Firewall – Existing sessions do not get terminated correctly when the scheduling object no longer matches.    [BNNGF-91568]

  • Firewall – When creating a new custom network app with a few ports (e.g., 4 ports) and the IP of a fileserver, any port is open instead of the configured 4 ports.    [BNNGF-92511]

  • Firewall – Reconfiguring a WSG Bridge leads to a broken ARP negotiation. As a workaround, reboot your instance.    [BNNGF-92703]

  • Licensing – If the pool license is renewed, the permission scope for pool licenses is reset.    [BNNGF-94610]
  • SD-WAN – SD-WAN Default Policies are not migrated automatically from 8.3 to 9.0. Select "Restore Policy List from Default" in SD-WAN Default Policies if a ruleset before 9.0.1 was using policies.    [BNNGF-92435]

  • SSL-VPN and CudaLaunch – Shared folders containing spaces in the folder name are no longer accessible via CudaLaunch. As a workaround, replace spaces with %20    [BNNGS-3970]

  • SSL-VPN – SSL VPN may be vulnerable to HTTP request smuggling.    [BNNGF-80814]

  • Telemetry – For managed firewalls note that settings displayed in the UI on the Control Center and the managed box can differ depending on the cluster and firmware version.    [BNNGF-89044]

  • VPN – Dynmesh tunnels do not get established when both sites are behind a NAT after updating to 9.0.0.    [BNNGF-90377]

  • VPN – Since the update to 9.0.1, MFA requests with Radius push notifications fail when the MFA request is not accepted within approx. 6 seconds.    [BNNGF-92696]

  • Firewall - App-Detection – Initially failing app detection or invalid TLS certificate due to large Client Hello.
    Certain browsers force the use of Kyber, a post-quantum key agreement algorithm, in TLS.
