The Control Center Geo Maps page provides a geographic map interface for fast access to frequently needed F-Series Firewalls and site-to-site VPN tunnels. To display tunnel status information on the Geo Maps page, go to Global Settings > CC Parameters and enable Poll Box VPN Status. Go to CONTROL > Geo Maps to access the Geo Maps page.
The Geo Maps window shows the firewalls that have been added to Geo Maps (Bitmap mode) on the Status Map page or that have been placed manually through the interface itself. For more information, see CC Status Map Page.
To modify the display, the Geo Maps page offers the following icons in the top right of the ribbon bar:
- Arrange Boxes – Enables the editing mode to manually place firewalls managed by this Control Center. Simply drag and drop the appropriate firewall of the appearing list on the left into the Geo Map.
- Add Map – Add an additional map by selecting the desired region and its placement.
- Show Tunnels – Displays site-to-site VPN tunnels and the corresponding status of firewalls placed on the Geo Map. Ensure that you have Poll Box VPN Status enabled.
- Save to CC – Saves the current Geo Maps configuration to the Barracuda Control Center.
- Load from CC – Loads a saved Geo Maps configuration from the Barracuda Control Center.
