How to Create a Geo Location based Network Object

  • Last updated on
The geolocation database included with the Barracuda NG Firewall can match the IP address and network to the country it was issued to. This enables you to create firewall ruled based on the physical location of the source or destination. Lists of countries or regions are combined in a reusable network object. The geolocation database is updated with every firmware release. 

Create a Network Object

Create a network object and include all countries you want to use for your firewall rule.

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Virtual Servers > your virtual server > Assigned Services > Firewall > Forwarding Rules.
  2. Click Send Changes and Activate.

You can now select the geolocation network object you just created from the Source and Destination dropdown lists when creating firewall rules. Alternatively you can find the network object icon the Object Viewer in the Networks > Network Objects section.
