Barracuda Web Application Firewall

Connect the Barracuda Web Application Firewall to the Network

  • Last updated on
  1. Fasten the Barracuda Web Application Firewall to a standard 19-inch rack or other stable location.
  2. If using Reverse Proxy, then the network switch referenced in 2 (a) and (b) below may be the same physical switch. If using Bridge Path, however, then separate switches on different Layer 2 networks must be used.
    1. Connect a CAT5 Ethernet cable from the WAN interface on the Barracuda Web Application Firewall to the network switch where the VIPs reside.
    2. Connect a CAT5 Ethernet cable from the LAN interface on the Barracuda Web Application Firewall to the network switch where the Real Servers reside.

      Connecting the MGMT port located on the back panel of the unit to the network switch where the VIPs reside is recommended.

  3. Connect the following to your Barracuda Web Application Firewall:
    1. Power cord
    2. VGA monitor
    3. PS2 keyboard
  4. Press the Power button located on the front of the unit. The login prompt for the administrative console displays on the monitor, and the power light on the front of the Barracuda Web Application Firewall turns on. For a description of each indicator light, refer to Front Panel Indicator Lights in the Barracuda Web Application Firewall's Administrators Guide.
