Problem resolved.It turns out that when updating the firmware, you need to make sure the unit is in soft bypass mode. While I could swear up and down that it was, maybe not.Anyway, what happens is that a log file in the OS get's screwed up, and a technician from Barracuda had to remote in to the unit to delete the corrupted file. Once that was done, we were able to place the unit into active mode and everything worked 100% as advertised.It looked like a rights issue, a DNS issue, all sorts of things, but it was just that one corrupted file.I think the key here is to remember that when upgrading the firmware, make sure that you place the unit in soft bypass mode and save that change once you make it. Then upgrade the firmware, reboot the unit, and place it back in active mode. I haven't had a chance to test this, but it is what is recommended by tech support.Once my unit went active, it worked like a charm. I have been monitoring the log file for suspect url's and blocking as needed for things like Weatherbug. I need to find a way to work a proxy server into this for web caching, but this should save a lot of problems in terms of wasted bandwidth, spyware, etc.
