How to Configure a SharePoint Web Forward

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda NG Firewall SSL VPN offers preconfigured templates for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and 2013. The template automatically fills in all necessary web forward parameters and configures Single Sign-On using the session username and password. If the user must use a different password or user to sign in, create user attributes to replace the session attributes.

Configure a SharePoint Web Forward

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Virtual Servers > your virtual server > Assigned Services > VPN-Service > SSL-VPN.
  2. In the left menu, select Web Forwards.
  3. Click Lock.
  4. Click + to add a web forward to the Web Forwards list. The Web Forwards List opens.
  5. Select the SharePoint template matching your SharePoint server from the Web Resource Template dropdown. The Enter Name window opens.
  6. Enter the non-qualified hostname of your Microsoft SharePoint server and click OK. E.g., yoursharepoint

    Do not enter a FQDN for the SharePoint.


  7. Enter the Single Sign-On (SSO) domain for your SharePoint server and click OK.
  8. Enter the Visible Name. This is the name used in the desktop and mobile portal for this web forward.
