Is there any way to make the ACNS to allow msn messenger to connect through it.
For a reason a blocked the default port for MSN (1863) to force it to use the port 80 so the traffic is directed to ACNS over WCCP as it is WEB traffic. It's directed but the MSN does not connect.
If i block the port 1863 and stop sending http traffic to wccp the MSN uses port 80 and connects fine.
Is good to know that you were able to find the workaround. Actually I was on the lab testing this due that I noticed that you had 2671 bypassed requests. Definitely bypassing authenticated traffic is going to resolve the issue, but I also wanted to recommend you to try another solution.
Add these commands to the CE:
- http cache-authenticated all
- http cache-cookies
and remove the bypass auth-traffic command.
This would allow the CE to cache as much as possible of the transaction. I tested and it works just fine and the CE is seeing cache hits.
As a side note, I noticed that the messenger goes on port 80 so you don't have to worry about the port 1863.
Thanks & Regards,
