Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

How to Assign Services

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall has two types of services. Box services provide functionality required to run the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall system. They are factory defined and cannot be created or removed by the user. User-related services can be created and are assigned to the configuration node Assigned Services.

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall Services

Depending on your model, some services may not be available. Consult the datasheet for your appliance for more information on which services are available for your model.

The following services are available for individual configuration on the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall:

  • Access Control Service
  • DHCP Service
  • DHCP Relay
  • DNS
  • Firewall
  • HTTP Proxy
  • OSPF/RIP/BGP Service
  • SNMP Service
  • URL Filter
  • Virus Scanner
  • VPN Service
Barracuda Firewall Control Center Service

The following services are available on a Barracuda Firewall Control Center:

  • CC DNS
  • CC Firewall
  • CC Configuration Service
  • CC Event Service
  • CC Syslog Service
  • CC FW Audit Log Service
  • CC Reporter
  • CC Statistics Collector
  • CC VPN Service
  • CC Access Control Service
  • CC PKI Service

Create a Service

When creating a service is completed, the service will be subordinated to the Assigned Services node and bound to the firewall.

In case you are operating multiple firewalls, it is strongly recommended that you configure unique names for all services. This is important especially before turning a stand-alone firewall into a managed one because in a cluster all service names must be unique. Otherwise, the import of a PAR file from a stand-alone box into the Control Center will fail.
Step 1. Add a Service
  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Assigned Services .
  2. Right-click Assigned Services and select Create Service.
  3. Enter a Service Name. The name must be unique and no longer than 30 characters. The service name cannot be changed later.
  4. In the Software Module field, select the type of service that you are creating, e.g., VPN service. You cannot change the service type after the service is created.

    The types of services that you can create are dependent on your license and system model. Verify the product type and appliance model in the Box Properties if services are missing.

Step 2. Service IPs and Type of Service

Assign the IP addresses the service listens on.

  1. In the Listening IP Configuration section, enter the IP addresses for the service.
  2. Select the IP addresses the service listens on from the Listening IP list.
    • All IPs – Some services (e.g., Firewall) will automatically listen on all available shared IP addresses.
    • First + Second-IP – Listen on the first and second shared IP address.
    • First-IP – Listen on the first service IP address.
    • Second-IP – Listen on the second shared IP address. 
    • Explicit – Add the IP addresses you want to use to the Explicit Service IPs table.

  3. Click Next.
Step 3. Statistics (optional)

Enable statistics settings for the service. By default, all settings are enabled for the service:

  1. In the Statistics Settings section, set Generate Statistics to yes.

  2. Edit the following settings according to your requirements:
    • Src Statistics – Generates IP source-based statistical data for the service. Only the number of connections from IP addresses is recorded. The times at which the connections were made are not recorded.
    • Src Time-Statistics – Generates IP source-based statistical data for the service. Both the number of connections made from IP addresses and the times at which the connections were made are recorded.
    • Dst Statistics – Generates IP destination-based statistical data for the service. Only the number of connections to IP addresses is recorded. The times at which the connections were made are not recorded.
    • Dst Time-Statistics – Generates IP destination-based statistical data for the service. Both the number of connections made to IP addresses and the times at which the connections were made are recorded.
    • Src-Dst Statistics – Generates IP source/destination pair-based statistical data for the service. Only the number of connections to and from IP addresses is recorded. The times at which the connections were made are not recorded.
  3. Click Next.
Step 4. Access Notification (optional)

Configure which events are created for successful and unsuccessful logins. On stand-alone firewalls and on the box level of the Control Center, this setting can be configured only for all administrators. On the Control Center, each type of administrator (Multi-Range > Global Settings > CC Access Notification) can be handled separately. Access notifications are available only for the DHCP Server, Firewall, VPN, and the Mail Gateway service.

The following events are used for login attempts:

  • The User Unknown event is generated when the admin ID is unknown to the underlying Barracuda Networks authentication module.
  • The Authentication Failure event is used when the password or key does not match or when the admin is not authorized to access the service (multi-admin environment, only in conjunction with a Barracuda Firewall Control Center).

To configure which events are created, complete the following steps:

  1. In the Notification section, edit the following settings according to your requirements:
    1. Success – Select the notification level for a successful login:
      • Silent – No event.
      • Notice – CGF Subsystem Login Notice [2420].
      • Warning – CGF Subsystem Login Warning [2421].
      • Alert – CGF Subsystem Login Alert [2422].
    2. Failure – Select the notification level for an unsuccessful login:
      • Silent  – No event.
      • Notice – Authentication Notice [4110] or [4100].
      • Warning – Authentication Warning [4111] or [4100].
      • Alert – Authentication Failure [4111] or [4100].
  2. Click Finish.
  3. Click Activate to create the service.

The service is now displayed as active on the CONTROL > Service page.

Remove a Service

Removing a service is permanent and cannot be undone.

  1. Expand the Assigned Services node (Configuration > Configuration Tree > Box).
  2. Right-click the service you want to delete and click Lock.
  3. Right-click the service you want to delete and click Remove Service. A verification popup opens.
  4. Click Yes.
  5. Click Activate.

Enable or Disable a Service

  1. Go to the Service Properties node (CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Assigned Services > your service ).
  2. Click Lock.
  3. To disable the service set Enable Service to No.
    create service_03.png
  4. To enable the service set Enable Service to Yes.
  5. Click Send Changes and Activate.

After assigning a service, you can now configure its specific properties. For more information, see Services.
