Support Connection

For help from a Barracuda Networks technician to troubleshoot and diagnose a potential issue, click Establish Connection to Barracuda Networks Support Center to create a secure troubleshooting connection from your Barracuda Firewall Insights to the Barracuda Networks Technical Support servers.

To open a support connection:

  1. Go to ADVANCED > Troubleshooting.
  2. Click Establish Connection to Barracuda Networks Support Center.
    A new window will appear that displays the following:
    • Access token and serial number required by the support technician in order to access your Barracuda Firewall Insights
    • Status of connection
    • Button to terminate connection
  3. Work with the Support Representative to solve your issue.
  4. When your support issue is resolved, click Terminate Connection to Barracuda Central.

After the connection is terminated, all existing connections with the support servers are immediately closed, and all new connection attempts will be rejected until the connection is re-established from Barracuda Firewall Insights.

This connection lasts only a few hours.
