After deploying Barracuda Firewall Insights, you must set up the network configuration and enter the license token.

Before You Begin

  • On a KVM Hypervisor you cannot disconnect your network interface card. You must connect your Firewall Insights unit to a separate network where the IP address is not used by any other device.
  • Please note: Barracuda Firewall Insights cannot be deployed in a network.

You can always log into your Firewall Insights on the console (Step 3). But on first boot, you must log in on the console to provide basic network settings and your license in order to access the web interface of Firewall Insights.

  1. Log into your hypervisor with root permission.
