Access Controller Licensing

License and activate the Access Controller using Barracuda Activation on the Control Center. The number of Secure Connectors allowed to connect to a single Access Controller is determined by the Access Controller Energize Updates (EU) pool license assigned to the Access Controller. One Access Controller pool license provides five Secure Connector licenses. Additional SCs must be assigned an extra pool license through the Access Controller via the Control Center.

License and activate the Access Controller on the Control Center. The licenses are automatically downloaded and installed. For more information, see How to Assign and Activate Single Licenses on a Control Center.
