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.
