Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

How to License your Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

  • Last updated on

You must complete licensing during the initial three-day grace period. If unlicensed after three days, the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall switches to demo mode. Following activation, the licenses are downloaded by the firewall automatically.

Web Interface

Licenses for the CloudGen Firewall Web Interface are provided by the Barracuda Online database. You can monitor your licenses on the Web Interface Licenses page.

For more information, see How to Activate and License a CloudGen Firewall from the Web Interface.

Hardware Licensing 

Hardware appliances only need to be activated. Following activation, the licenses are downloaded by the firewall automatically. Control Center licenses are installed directly via Barracuda Firewall Admin.

For more information, see How to Activate and License a Stand-alone Hardware CloudGen Firewall Using Barracuda Firewall Admin.

Vx Licensing

Virtual units are activated by entering the serial number and license token you received from Barracuda Customer Services. After activation, the licenses are downloaded by the firewall VM automatically. Licensing for firewalls deployed in one of the public cloud services are also licensed using a license token and serial number.

For more information, see How to Activate and License a Stand-alone Virtual or Public Cloud Firewall or Control Center.

High Availability Cluster Licensing

When licensing units in a high availability cluster, you must activate the secondary unit first. The secondary unit will not download any licenses after activation. Instead, it waits for the primary unit to be activated. The primary unit then downloads the licenses for both units and installs the license on the secondary unit via HA sync.
