Network Connector

  • Last updated on

The Network Connector provides full, transparent access for users requiring general or more widespread network access. No configuration is required on the client computer, the configuration is stored on the Barracuda SSL VPN. Authorized users can be provided with complete TCP/UDP access to the entire network in a manner similar to what is provided by IPsec, including mounting drives, accessing network shares and moving files, just as if they were physically inside the companies network.


The Network Connector consists of two components:

  • server-side component which needs to be enabled on the Barracuda SSL VPN to allow access by your designated users.
  • client-side component that, when installed onto the remote system, connects to the server interfaces.

When a client connects to the Barracuda SSL VPN with the Network Connector, it is assigned a secondary IP address from the IP range defined in the network connector resource configuration. The network connector uses the assigned secondary IP and the configured published routes to determine which traffic to forward to the internal network. The default configuration is for the network connector to act as a split level VPN, only routing traffic destined for the internal network through the tunnel. It is possible to change this behavior to route all traffic through the network connector.
