How to Create Access Rules for TINA Site-to-Site VPN Access

  • Last updated on

After configuring a TINA VPN tunnel between two Barracuda NG Firewalls, you must create a Pass access rule on both systems to allow traffic between them.

This access rule allows all network traffic to pass between the LANs of both systems.

Create an Access Rules allowing traffic in to and out of a TINA VPN tunnel

  1. Go to the Forwarding Rules page (Config > Full Config > Virtual Servers > Assigned Services > Firewall).
  2. Click Lock.
  3. From the Edit Rule menu in the left menu, click New.
  4. In the New Rule window, configure the settings to allow traffic between both systems:
    • Select Pass as the action.
    • In the Name field, enter a name for the rule.
    • In the Source section, specify the local network address.
    • From the Service list, select All.
    • In the Destination section, specify the network address for the VPN partner.
    • From the Connection Method list, select No Src NAT (Client).
    • Select the Bi-Directional check box to apply the rule to both locations.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Reorder the access rule by dragging it to the correct position in the forward firewalls rule set. Make sure no access rule placed above it will match the traffic for the site-to-site access rule.
  7. Click Send Changes and Activate.

Next Steps

Make sure that you also create the access rule on the VPN partner system to allow traffic from both networks through the VPN tunnel.
