Barracuda Network Access Client

Fully Preconfigured Custom Installation

  • Last updated on

The silent.cmd setup is a comprehensive installation method, allowing you to fully preconfigure all Network Access Client settings remotely on multiple installation systems. The silent.cmd setup is only available for the Barracuda VPN Client. It requires administrator rights on the target system. Only experienced system administrators should perform this method. 

Installation Using a silent.cmd File

Prepare the install file and execute an unattended customer setup.

Step 1. Prepare the silent.cmd File:

Save the following to a.cmd file. Separate multiple properties with spaces:

@echo off
start /wait BarracudaNAC.exe /clone_wait /s /v"/qr PROGTYPE=VPN REBOOT=Suppress"
reg import mysettings.reg

The registry file (mysettings.reg) allows optional import of client settings (e.g., export of HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Phion\phionvpn\Profile to use pre-existing profiles).


If you want to import the credential provider for SSO in Windows you must append the install command with argument "ADDLOCAL=x64CredProv" and add the following keys in the mysettings.reg file:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\\CLSID\\{6CBB6E49-617A-4d74-AD03-B591C78DE5A3} // KEY
"", "CredentialProvider" // REG_SZ
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\\CLSID\\{6CBB6E49-617A-4d74-AD03-B591C78DE5A3}\\InprocServer32 // KEY
"", "CredentialProviderWin8.dll" // REG_SZ
"ThreadingModel", "Apartment" // REG_SZ
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Authentication\\Credential Providers\\{6CBB6E49-617A-4d74-AD03-B591C78DE5A3} // KEY
"", "CredentialProvider" // REG_SZ
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Authentication\\Credential Provider Filters\\{6CBB6E49-617A-4d74-AD03-B591C78DE5A3} // KEY
"", "phionCredentialProviderFilter" // REG_SZ
"CredentialProviderInstalled", 1 // REG_DWORD

Save the following to a.cmd file.

@echo off
start /wait BarracudaNAC.exe /clone_wait /s /v"/qr PROGTYPE=VPN ADDLOCAL=x64CredProv REBOOT=Suppress"
reg import mysettings.reg
Step 2. Copy the File to the Setup Directory
  • Copy the silent.cmd file to the folder containing the BarracudaNAC.exe file.
Step 3. Execute the Installation
  • Execute the silent.cmd file to trigger an unattended customer setup.

After installing the client, you can connect and configure the settings. Continue with Getting Started.
