Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

Getting Started - Control Center for AWS

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda Firewall Control Center for AWS is available as a Bring Your Own License (BYOL) image from the AWS Marketplace. Two models are available. The VCC610 supports two ranges and unlimited clusters, the VCC400 one range and one cluster. The Control Center can manage both on-premises hardware and virtual firewalls, as well as CloudGen Firewalls in the public cloud. It is not possible to use the AWS Control Center in a high availability cluster.

Before You Begin

  • Deploy the Barracuda Firewall Control Center for AWS image from the Marketplace. For more information, see Amazon AWS Deployment
  • Verify that you are not blocking TCP 807 and TCP 806, as these ports are required for management access to the Control Center. 
  • Open TCP 692 for remote management tunnels if CloudGen Firewalls, which are not in the same VPC, are managed by the Control Center.
  • Activate the license on the box layer of the Control Center. For more information, see How to Activate and License a Stand-alone Virtual or Public Cloud Firewall or Control Center.
