WCCP redirection for non standard ports

Unanswered Question
Feb 27th, 2007


I have a WAN accelerator which communicates with the router using WCCP v2.

In addition to "http" traffic I need to redirect traffic arriving on other application ports.

I'm believe using an extended ACL will check only for source and destination IP address.

1. Could anyone confirm this?

2. Is there an alternate way of acheiving this?

Any inputs would be highly appreciated.


I have this problem too.

Extended Acls will also check for sepcific protocols i.e tcp, udp, igmp,icmp,rip,etc and again check for both source port and destination port numbers as you may wish to specify.

Hope this helps

Hi Paul,

thanks for your reply. I agree an extended ACL can match for source and destination ports.

I am refering to the use of extended ACLs in context with WCCP.

Here is a snapshot of recommended config -

Router(config)# ip wccp web-cache redirect-list 120

Router(config)# access-list 120 deny tcp host any

Router(config)# access-list 120 deny tcp any host

Router(config)# access-list 120 permit ip any any

For complete configuration guide -
