The hardware specifications list was valid at the time this manual was published. The listed components are subject to change at any time, as Barracuda Networks may change hardware components due to technological advancements. Therefore, the list may not reflect the current hardware configuration of the Barracuda Networks CloudGen Firewall or Control Center appliance it was delivered with.

LEDs and Acoustic Signals

Your appliance is equipped with a variety of LEDs. One of them is the Status LED. It is labeled either with a heart symbol or the term 'Status'. It indicates the appliance’s operational state by changing colors between green and red and by changing between blinking and steady glowing. The tables below show the different meanings of the different glowing states and acoustic signals:

LED ColorStatusMeaning InstallationMeaning Operation

Not all appliances support yellow and/or red LED colors. Depending on the appliance type, the status LED might be on by default and it might take some time during boot and installation to start either blinking or changing the color. Furthermore, the status LED might blink at different frequencies.

Serial Console Port

In order to establish a console connection to the appliance using a serial cable (Revision A: DB9, Revision B: RJ45), you need to configure the serial port on the terminal using the following parameters:

Stop bit1

LC Display


This security appliance features a key pad with four keys and an LCD panel on the left side of the front panel. These may be used to obtain certain information and to perform certain commands directly on the appliance.

Keyboard ButtonCommand
Left arrow

Navigates back or acts like an Escape key while working in the LCD menu.

Up arrow

Navigates up or increases a value.

Down arrow

Navigates down or decreases a value.

Right arrow

Navigates forth or acts like an Enter key for confirming a configuration step.

LCD Display Menu

You may use the LCD display and the keypad to access certain appliance features. Use the up and down keys to navigate through the items of the main menu.

The LCD menu features the following items from top to bottom:

LCD MenuMeaning
Appliance type, OS version and release numberThis is the default display.
IP address and subnet maskShows the configured IP address and subnet mask of the appliance.
Time and dateShows time and date currently configured on the appliance.
Uptime of Barracuda OSThe uptime in days, hours and minutes.
Serial number of the applianceUnique identifier for the appliance.
Shutdown menuEnables you to shut down the appliance.
Reboot menuEnables you to reboot the appliance.
Menu to change the management IP addressConfigure the IP address for the management port.
Menu to boot into ART during the next reboot

Enables you to set a flag that will cause the appliance to boot into ART the next time it is rebooted.
Once set, this flag can not be deleted through the menu. When rebooted, the appliance will not start Barracuda OS, but ART instead. You may connect to the appliance by using the serial console or by SSH. A managed F-Series Firewall running in ART mode cannot be managed through the Control Center, although it will connect to the Control Center to signal its presence.

Rack Mounting

For information on how to mount your appliance, see Rack Installation for Barracuda CloudGen Firewall F800 Revision C and F900 Revision A,B.
