In order to better secure our SPAM firewall appliance, I found it necessary to configure the Per-User Quarantine Host with a hostname that is externally accessible by our travel employees.

 

However, the Barracuda Spam Filter only allows configuration of an IP address or server host name.  If you provide a host name the SPAM filter will only allow for a host name and provide the default port of 8000.

 

Since hackers often attempt to scan for the most common ports (80, 8080, 8000), I need to be able to configure a custom port number in the firewall where remote users can still have access to the quarantine without knowledge of the internal server ports used by Barracuda web server.

 

Please add the ability to supply a custom FQDN and port number in the Quarantine Host address so it is possible to customize the URL issued during quarantine notifications.
