CudaLaunch offers secure remote access to your organization's applications and data from mobile devices. It is available for iOS and Android devices via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. CudaLaunch on Android uses Barracuda's VPN client; CudaLaunch on iOS manages the built-in IPsec VPN client. To evaluate CudaLaunch without having to set up the Barracuda NextGen Firewall X-Series services, log in with the demo user credentials.
Before you begin
- Configure the services and features you want to use in CudaLaunch on your Barracuda NextGen Firewall X-Series. For more information, see How to Enable SSL VPN and CudaLaunch.
- Verify that you are using a mobile device with a supported operating system. For more information, see SSL VPN Supported Devices.
Logging into CudaLaunch
To log in, you must have the following information:
- Hostname or IP address – The IP address or FQDN resolving to the public IP address the X-Series Firewall's SSL VPN service is listening on.
Swipe to the Apps tab. To launch a web forward, tap on the icon. Frequently used web forwards can be added to the Favorites tab for easy access.
Swipe to the VPN Connections tab. Tap on one of the VPN connection profiles that are either stored on your device or made available by the admin through SSL-VPN VPN templates. The key symbol in the taskbar is displayed as long as you are connected to the VPN. Settings for the VPN connection can be changed in the Option menu under VPN Profiles. Changes to the VPN templates by the administrator are automatically synced to the mobile device. Full-device VPN connections can be used by all native apps on your device, not just CudaLaunch.
Setting user attributes
User attributes are user-specific placeholder values used for web forwards. User attributes can be filled/changed in the Options menu of CudaLaunch. When a web forward is launched the first time, the user is requested to fill in the user attributes. To fill in or change a user attribute, tap Settings in the Options menu of CudaLaunch. Tap on Personal Settings to see a list of the user attributes for your user.
For more information, see How to Use and Create Attributes.
To log out of CudaLaunch, expand the options menu on the top left, and then select Log Out.
