Barracuda CloudGen WAN

How to Create a Site Configuration in Barracuda CloudGen WAN

  • Last updated on

You must create a site configuration with the basic settings for each Barracuda CloudGen WAN appliance. If your appliance is already ordered and installed on site, it will wait for the site configuration and apply the configuration as soon as it is available. If, however, the appliance is not yet installed, it will apply the configuration as soon as it is connected to the Internet.

  2. Click SITES.
