Newer versions (starting from 5.1.7) of the Barracuda VPN client are also available on the Mac App Store. Upon installing via Mac App Store (or via direct download from Barracuda website), you'll notice that the connection profiles are gone and that only the standard default profile is present. This is because the new version looks for the configuration profiles in a different location so as to be compliant with requirements for apps on the App Store. Luckily, the old configuration files still exist and a simple relocate of the required file will bring back your profiles.

In older versions, everything about the Barracuda VPN clients, such as profiles, license files, etc. were stored directl  ...

Barracuda NextGen firewalls are managed either by webinterface or by using the FirewallAdmin (used to be: NGAdmin) management application. This is a standalone application consisting of a single executable which can be downloaded and run (like a portable app). The software does not need any installation but if you're using the software in a shared environment (such as a Terminal Server), it may be useful to "install" the software in a central location and create shortcuts to it, like if you were to install the software. By using NullSoft Scriptable Install System (NSIS), you can create an installer that does just that.

The Barracuda VPN Client does not work properly on macOS Mojave: after connecting the VPN, the UI crashes and restarting it immediately makes it crash again. The VPN tunnel itself does work, but other than manually killing the process (kill -9), it is not possible to terminate the tunnel (other than rebooting of course).

An updated version of the client, Barracuda VPN Client 5.0.2.5 for macOS is available which resolves these issues.

Barracuda NG Firewall has a comprehensive anti-malware and anti-virus scanning engine. Unfortunately, this clashes with the Apple Appstore: downloading apps and updates get blocked by the AV scanning engine. In order to resolve this, the URLs from Apple need to be excluded.

Using NGAdmin, log on to the firewall (or Control Center), navigate to the Virus-Scanner service of the firewall, and open the Virus Scanner Settings configuration node.

Click on Content Scanning and under the HTTP Multimedia Streaming section, add a new Scan Exception.

Enter a name for the exclusion, then enter these values:

Allowed MIME-Types: add the value *

Domain: *.apple.*

Setting the allowed MIME-type to * is  ...

The actual serial number of a Barracuda NG Firewall can be obtained remotely in two ways:

  • Log on locally using NGAdmin and read the serial number from the dashboard. The serial number shown there is the actual serial number, and not the configured serial number.
  • Log on locally using SSH and run hwtool -s will also display the actual serial number.
