Configuring Bridge Mode
In Bridge mode, the Barracuda Web Application Firewall uses the same IP address for Virtual IP (VIP) and the back-end server. Use this mode of operation when you want to avoid network changes such as the server IP address and DNS mappings. Bridge Mode is not supported by the Barracuda Web Application Firewall Vx virtual machine.
Changing the Mode of Operation
To change the mode of operation from Proxy to Bridge, select Bridge All Traffic under Operation Mode on the BASIC > IP Configuration page and click Save. If you want to change the mode of operation from Bridge to Proxy:
- Make sure that Bypass on Failure and Hard Bypass in the Bypass Configuration section is set to No.
- Select Proxy and click Save.
