After configuring a VPN tunnel between two Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls, you must create a Pass access rule on both systems to allow traffic through the VPN tunnel.
Before You Begin
- Configure a TINA or IPsec Site-to-Site VPN tunnel. For more information, see How to Create a TINA VPN Tunnel between CloudGen Firewalls or How to Configure a Site-to-Site VPN with IPsec.
