I have just recently purchased a Barracuda message archiver.  It needs to have an externally resolvable FQDN.  I am not sure how to configure this in DNS.  Can you help?

You will do this at your domain registrar or who you have doing the DNS for your domain.

Add an A Record like archive.domain.com

The way I read that means that you need to have a registered domain name (mydomain.com), make sure the barracuda is reachable from a public address on the internet and point an FQDN to that address (like barracuda.mydomain.com).


I just had to call who was doing our DNS and they created a record.  Then I just had to NAT it through our firewall to the right internal IP.
