Getting Started - NG Control Center without CC Setup Wizard

  • Last updated on

Before you complete the steps in this article, finish the Getting Started section for the Barracuda NG Firewall and configure all box layer settings.

The box layer of the Barracuda NG Control Center uses the same "Getting Started" steps as the Barracuda NG Firewall. Once the licenses and other basic settings are complete, you must configure the NG Control Center management layer.

In this article

Before you Begin

Step 2. Set the First IP for the Virtual Server

Configure the CC management IP address (MIP) for the virtual server S1 on the box layer of the NG Control Center. This is the IP address you use when connecting to the NG Control Center.

  1. Log into the box layer of the Barracuda NG Control Center.
  2. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Virtual Servers > S1 > Server Properties.
  3. Click Lock.
