The Barracuda NG Firewall Authentication Client

  • Last updated on

To automate Offline Firewall Authentication, use the Barracuda NG Firewall Authentication Client. After installing the client application, the user will be automatically logged in to the firewall authentication service every time they log into Windows. The Barracuda NG Firewall Authentication Client can automatically start with Microsoft Windows and will run until you close the client by selecting Exit from the tray menu icon. The active firewall authentication will time out once the client is closed.

  2. Click Next.
  3. Accept the license agreement and click Next.
  4. In the Internet Options window, enter the URL of your Barracuda NG Firewall authentication page.
