How to Enable the Firewall Audit Log Service

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda NG Firewall generates Audit Log entries for both local and/or forwarding traffic. The Firewall Audit Info viewer is accessible by selecting the Firewall tab and clicking the Audit Log icon in the ribbon bar. The local Audit Info viewer is available on every Barracuda NG Firewall generating a Firewall Audit logfile.   

Enable Audit Logs

Activate the generation of Firewall Audit data:

  1. Open the General Firewall Configuration page (Config > Full Config > Infrastructure Services).
  2. In the menu, click on Audit and Reporting.
  3. In the menu, expand the Configuration Mode section and click Switch to Advanced View.
  4. Click Lock.
  5. In the Log Policy section enable Generate Audit Log.
  6. Click Set next to Audit Log Data.
  7. Select Regular Logfile from the Audit Delivery drop-down.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click Send Changes and Activate.

Firewall Audit data is stored locally by default, but may be forwarded to the Barracuda NG Control Center or to a dedicated Barracuda NG Firewall running the Firewall Audit Log service for central audit log file collection. For more information, see FW Audit.
