  • Last updated on

If you cannot access the Barracuda SSL VPN web interface on macOS clients when using Safari version 10, or above, configure the Java plug-in to run in unsafe mode. 

Before you begin

Verify that the browser settings must be changed. Launch the Barracuda SSL VPN agent so that you can configure it in the browser´s Java plug-ins list. When the Barracuda SSL VPN application cannot launch because of your browser´s settings, a window opens and displays the program path. In this case, you must change the Java security settings.
