How to Configure AV Scanning

  • Last updated on

The Barracuda SSL VPN delivers the latest in virus and application definitions through Energize Updates (see Licensing). When virus scanning is enabled, the Barracuda SSL VPN scans files that are uploaded through the Barracuda SSL VPN for viruses and other malware. You can determine the types of files to scan by specifying a pattern or a specific filename. Any file matching one of the current patterns will have the associated action performed on it. To remove a pattern, select it from the corresponding section and click Remove.

Configure virus scanning

  1. Log into the Barracuda SSL VPN Web interface as the ssladmin administrative user.

  2. Go to the BASIC > Virus Checking page.
  3. Verify that you have selected the correct user database on the top right of the page.

  4. In the Virus Scanning Options section, select Yes to Enable Virus Scanning.
  5. Next to Files to Scan, enter the patterns or filenames to be scanned for viruses and click Add >>.

    Specify files by their exact name or combined with the asterisk ("*") as a wildcard that matches any number of any character. For example:

    • The file "badfile.html": badfile.html
    • All files ending in ".exe": *.exe
    • All files starting with "Readme": Readme*
    • Every file: *
  6. If you want files to be excluded, add them to the Patterns to Exclude list.
  7. In the Files to Block section, add the patterns or filenames that should be blocked without any scanning.
