This article applies to installing the Barracuda WSA using the Barracuda Web Security Service.

To find the SERVICE_URL value for the .mst installation file, log into the Barracuda Web Security Service Manager, select the SUPPORT tab, and retrieve the Service Host URL.

Follow examples in the table below to install the Barracuda WSA from the command line of a Windows PC or laptop, or for use in a batch (.bat) file or GPO. See Configuration Options for the Barracuda Web Security Agent for a list of Barracuda WSA installation options.
