The new IP address and network settings are applied to your Barracuda Control Server.

Specify Network Path

Barracuda Networks devices you want to manage through the Barracuda Control Server must have a network path between the devices and at least one of the following ports available to communicate between the devices: port 80, 8000, 23557, or 48320. Additionally, the Barracuda Control Server must be able to send out SMTP messages for password reset and adding new users. The default port to send messages is port 25 which you can set on the BASIC > Administration page. 

Configure Your Corporate Firewall

If your Barracuda Control Server is located behind a corporate firewall, you may need to open ports 1194 and ports 5120-5129 outbound for both TCP and UDP to allow communication between the Barracuda Control Server and the Internet.

These ports are used to transfer data either to the Barracuda Control Server, or to another Barracuda Networks appliance over the Internet. To restrict outbound network traffic on these ports, contact Barracuda Networks Technical Support for a list of the IP addresses to allow.
