Open specific ports on ASA5505 for backup appliance
Posted on 2015-02-18
We have installed a Barracuda Backup appliance inside our network protected by a Cisco ASA5505 firewall. Per Barracuda:
Ports 80/443 and 1194 outbound for both TCP and UDP are required for communication while ports 5120-5129 are used to replicate data to Barracuda Cloud Storage
I have an SBS 2008 Server inhouse so I presume 80/443 are open, however, I need to open ports 1194 and 5120-5129, as the appliance cannot talk to Barracuda at all. I put old firewall in and was able to activate backup appliance but once put ASA firewall back in, backup appliance stops communicating to Barracuda.
I have access through ASDM or Putty. I have figured out how to log into ASA5505 via Putty but unsure what to do after that. ASDM is confusing.
Can anyone provide me with commands to open these ports via Putty or directions to do so through ASDM? I know how to do this on other firewalls, but this ASA5505 escapes me.
