    a. Open Barracuda Web Security and navigate to ADVANCED > Log/Report Settings.

    b. Scroll to the Barracuda Reporting Server section.

    c. For Connect to Barracuda Server, select Yes, then specify the Barracuda Reporting Server's Hostname/IP Address, Shared Secret, and BRS Serial Number.

    For Barracuda Web Security Gateway versions prior to 14.1

    Contact Barracuda Technical Support to connect your Web Security Gateway devices to Barracuda Reporting Server.

    b. Expand the tree under the box to locate Infrastructure Services > Syslog Streaming. Double-click to open Syslog Streaming.

    c. Under Configuration, select Barracuda Reporting Server.

    d. Select the Enable checkbox, then specify the Barracuda Reporting Server's Hostname/IP Address, Shared Secret, and BRS Serial Number.

    Note: Be sure to follow the standard procedures for changing configuration, using the Lock, Send Changes, and Activate buttons.

    a. Open the Barracuda Firewall Control Center and navigate to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree.

    b. Select the range for which you want to make changes. Expand the range and select the box you want to connect to Barracuda Reporting Server.

    The Barracuda Reporting Server is the Shared Secret authority. Specify the Shared Secret for the Barracuda Reporting Server, then use that Shared Secret in devices you want to connect.

    You must specify these settings in the Barracuda Reporting Server first. If they are not specified in the Barracuda Reporting Server, you will receive an error when you click Connect.

  2. In the Barracuda Reporting Server, navigate to the BASIC > Administration page, then scroll down to the Connected Devices section to confirm that the connection was successful. The devices connect automatically.
  3. Repeat these steps to install additional devices. Use the same Shared Secret for each connected device.
  4. Ensure that all Barracuda devices attempting to connect to the Barracuda Reporting Server can be accessed through their respective IP addresses and can ping one another.

If you change the Shared Secret within the Barracuda Reporting Server, all currently connected devices are disconnected. You must reconnect each device using the new Shared Secret.
