How to Configure Local Authentication

  • Last updated on

If you do not have an external authentication service available, you can create and maintain a list of local users and groups on the Barracuda NextGen Firewall X-Series. You can refer to these users and groups when creating firewall rules, VPNs, or when configuring the captive portal.

To set up local authentication,

  1. Go to the USERS > Local Authentication page.
  2. In the Local Users and Groups table, configure the following settings for each user:
    • Username — Log-in name for the user.
    • Password — The user's password.
    • Group — Name of the user group this user belongs to.

      Ensure that you enter the correct group names. If you misspell a group name (e.g., tst instead of test), a new group is created and permissions are not applied correctly to the group.

  3. Click Add.
  4. Click Save to confirm your settings.

The user entry is now listed in the Local Users and Groups table.
