  • Last updated on

The Barracuda SecureEdge Manager allows administrators to enroll IoT devices, such as the Secure Connector, with the cloud service. The Barracuda Secure Connector is a hardware device that allows you to connect remote appliances and micro-networks to the corporate data center via VPN. To integrate Secure Connector appliances in your Barracuda SecureEdge environment, you must create a basic configuration for each IoT appliance. 

Step 1. Create an IoT Configuration

  1. Go to and log in with your existing Barracuda Cloud Control account.

  2. In the left menu, click the Tenants/Workspaces icon.
  3. From the drop-down menu, select the workspace your appliance should be assigned to.
  4. In the left menu, click the Infrastructure icon, and select IoT.
  5. The IoT page opens. In the top-right corner of the window, click New IoT Device.
  6. The Basic Information blade opens. Enter values for the following:

    • Serial – Enter the serial number of your appliance.
    • Code/Token – Enter the linking code (located on the back of the Quick Start Guide shipped with your hardware appliance), or the token of your VTx appliance.
  10. Click Add to add the device to your account.
  11. Click Next. The WANs blade opens.
  12. Click Next. The Configure Primary WAN link blade opens.

  14. Click Next. The LANs blade opens. Select the number of desired LAN connections from the drop-down list.
  15. Click Next. The Configure LAN link blade opens.
  16. Specify values for the following:
    • Name – Enter a name for your LAN.

    • IP Address – Enter the IP address.
    • Netmask – Enter a number between 0 and 32 for the subnet mask.
    • DHCP Server – Click to enable. If enabled, you must enter the First IP Address and the Last IP Address. IP addresses within this range will be automatically assigned via DHCP.
