WAAS supprt for GRE traffic?

Unanswered Question
Jun 30th, 2008

We have WAAS running at both our data center and branch offices. We are connecting the WAAS device to the WAN routers directly and using WCCP for redirection. Some of our branch to data center traffic is running through GRE tunnels which begin/end in our branch and data center server switches. Question - can WAAS optimize traffic that is already in GRE tunnels?

I have this problem too.

You have to intercept the traffic before it's inside the GRE tunnel. GRE traffic isn't TCP and won't be intercepted.

congiufre your redirection on the lan and wan interface service 61 on the lan interface and 62 on the wan interface. the wan interface in question is the gre tunnel.
