This solution applies to the Barracuda SSL VPN.


Mounting a network drive can be done for all three major operating systems. As the Network Connector feature uses a batch/script file upon connection completion it?s simply a matter of issuing the right commands.

Prerequisites:  A configured & tested Network Connector resource.

All three methods share a few common steps:


1.     Navigate to

2.     Login as ssladmin using your credentials.

3.     Navigate to Resources -> Network Connector.

4.     Edit the ?LAN1 Client? under Client Configuration. (Note, this is the default name, you can edit this to be whatever you wish).

5.     Once here you will find the up and down commands area for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X:

6.     This is the area where we will be inserting the necessary commands to mount AND dismount the drives upon connection / disconnect.


Windows differs from Linux and Mac OS X in the syntax and commands to be issued:

Windows Example:

Up command:

  • Net use z: \\computer name\share name (the drive letter, computer name, share name will differ according to your environment.)

Down Command:

  • Net use z: /delete (similar warning for the drive letter ? this entry needs to correspond to the up entry.)


Mac OS/X and Linux can be more complicated, and are outside of the scope of this article. If you require assistance with either of these environments, please contact Barracuda Networks Technical Support.
