How to Create Custom Web Forwards

  • Last updated on

The easiest way to create a Web Forward is by using one of the predefined templates, which include the most commonly used web applications. If your web application is not listed, create a custom Web Forward. You can configure the following types of custom Web Forwards:

  • Path-Based Reverse Proxy
  • Host-Based Reverse Proxy
  • Tunneled Proxy
  • Replacement Proxy
  • Direct URL

If you do not know what type of Web Forward to use, Barracuda Networks recommends that you first try using the path-based reverse proxy. Note also that only one Web Forward can be launched with the same path. For more information on the available custom Web Forward types, see Custom Web Forwards.

You can also configure additional options for the Web Forward, such as its authentication type or allowed hosts.

After you finish configuring the Web Forward, launch it to make it accessible to users.

Step 1. Create the Web Forward

To create the custom Web Forward:

  1. Log into the SSL VPN web interface.

  2. Go to the Manage System > RESOURCES > Web Forwards page.
  3. In the upper right, verify that you have selected the correct user database.
  4. In the Create Web Forward section:
    1. Enter a name for the custom Web Forward. This name is displayed to end users.
    2. From the Web Forward Category list, select the Custom check box. Then select the type of custom Web Forward that you are creating.
    3. Configure the settings that appear for the custom Web Forward type that you selected.
    4. Add the policies that you want to apply to the Web Forward.
  5. Click Add to create the Web Forward. The new Web Forward appears in the Web Forwards section.

Step 2. Edit the Web Forward

To configure additional options (e.g., Authentication Type and Allowed Hosts) for the custom Web Forward, edit its settings.

  1. In the Web Forwards section, click Edit next to the Web Forward entry.
  2. In the Edit Web Forward window, configure the additional settings.
  3. Click Save.

Step 3. Launch the Web Forward

Add a resource category to the Web Forward to make it available to users on their My Resources page.  

  1. In the Web Forwards section, click Edit next to the Web Forward entry.
  2. In the Edit Web Forward window, scroll to the Resource Categories section, and add the available categories that you want to apply to the Web Forward.
  3. If you want the Web Forward to automatically launch whenever users log into the Barracuda SSL VPN, scroll to the Details section and enable Auto-Launch.
  4. Click Save.
