Site-to-Site VPN

  • Last updated on

A site-to-site VPN allows multiple locations to establish secure connections over the Internet or other public networks. VPN tunnels transparently join networks, making remote resources securely available to clients behind the VPN devices through the tunnel. The Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series offers two VPN protocols: TINA and IPsec.


TINA is a Barracuda Networks proprietary VPN protocol designed to extend the feature set and to remove the limitations of the IPsec protocol. TINA is designed to provide superior VPN connectivity and availability. Site-to-Site TINA tunnels can only be established between F-Series Firewalls. Advanced VPN features, such as Traffic Intelligence or WAN Optimization, are only available for TINA VPN tunnels.

For more information, see TINA VPN Tunnels

IPsec VPN 

IPsec has established itself as the standard for VPN tunnels and is widely supported by almost all VPN device manufacturers. The Barracuda NextGen Firewall F-Series support both IKEv1 and IKEv2 IPsec Site-to-Site VPN tunnels to third-party VPN devices.

For more information, see IPsec VPN Tunnels.

Creating VPN Tunnels Using the Barracuda NextGen Control Center GTI Editor

The Barracuda NextGen Control Center includes the GTI Editor, a graphical interface to create and manage VPN tunnels. When configuring VPN tunnels manually, there are many identical configuration steps and settings. The GTI Editor eliminates many of these redundant steps, helping you configure your VPN tunnels more quickly and correctly.

For more information, see GTI Editor.
