How to Configure the SecureEdge SD-WAN Connector

  • Last updated on

Barracuda SecureEdge SD-WAN Connectors keep your devices secure by redirecting their traffic through a secure VPN connection. Barracuda SecureEdge Manager allows administrators to configure the SecureEdge SD-WAN Connector, a software solution for establishing a connection between the service and a resource that cannot be reached via routing. Registration of the SecureEdge SD-WAN Connector is token based. Once enrolled, each SD-WAN Connector is assigned a single static IP address within the SecureEdge environment. You can also configure a list of resources that the SD-WAN Connector can connect to. Each resource can be reached via Barracuda SecureEdge Agent if permitted by an existing policy. You can connect to numerous applications on Windows and Linux servers and in the cloud via one-click SD-WAN Connector deployments. SD-WAN Connector supports all edge services including private edge and edge service for virtual WAN.

Note that for the initial release, SD-WAN Connectors will be able to connect to only two providers or instances of the edge service they are attached to. For this reason, the first two static providers will be used and added under the WAN settings in the Private Edge. Any additional providers will be ignored. This is also true for cloud services when scale units are increased.

Step 1. Configure Client Network

  1. Go to https://se.barracudanetworks.com and log in with your existing Barracuda Cloud Control account.
  2. Select the workspace your SD-WAN Connector should be assigned to.
  3. Go to Infrastructure > Settings.

The exposed resources are accessible over the SecureEdge environment via the domain name you configured in the server configuration of the SD-WAN Connector in Step 1. The resources and services are now reachable via the Barracuda SecureEdge Agent for any client. The Barracuda SecureEdge Agent is a Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) agent running on the client that connects to the services offered by Barracuda SecureEdge. For more information, see How to Enroll Users in Barracuda SecureEdge.

You are now ready to access the configured resources and services of the SD-WAN Connector over the SecureEdge environment.

Re-Entering the Enrollment Token on Windows 

In Windows operating systems, the SD-WAN Connector application is located in the path C:\Program Files\Barracuda\SD-WAN Connector. When no configuration is available, the SD-WAN Connector service waits for a token; otherwise, you must restart the service to use a newly supplied token.

To re-enter new token in Windows:

  1. Go to C > Program Files > Barracuda > SD-WAN Connector.
  2. Click the application bsdwcui
    newTokenWin.png

The new token gets enrolled after a restart of the SD-WAN Connector service.

To get more detailed information on the status of the SD-WAN Connector, open the Event Viewer of your Windows client. To view the logs, go to Event Viewer > Windows Logs > Application
