1. About this Guide
This guide has been created in order to help sales engineers, product managers, or network specialists demonstrate the PacketFence capabilities on-site with an existing or potential customer. It can also provide guidelines to setup a proof of concept for a potential PacketFence deployment using the Barracuda firewall.
You have a configured PacketFence environment with working test equipment;
You have a Barracuda firewall.
3. Quick installation
3.1. Step 1: Configuration of the Barracuda in PacketFence
Go to Configuration → Integration → Firewall SSO → Add Firewall → Barracuda.
Hostname or IP Address: IP of your Barracuda
Firewall type: Barracuda (Barracuda = SSH requests)
Roles: add the roles that you want to do SSO
3.2. Step 2: Verification
For our example, when the user registers on the portal it will be registered and the role staff will be assigned. The PacketFence server will send a request to the Barracuda database.
If you want to see if it’s working, open an SSH access to your Barracuda and run this command following commands:
acpfctrl auth show
You will get that:
[root@baracudafw:~]# acpfctrl auth show 1 entries 172.20.20.152/0 origin=PacketFence service=PacketFence user=Jdoe
