Does WAAS really support TFO, DRE and LZC for HTTPS?

Unanswered Question
Jul 2nd, 2008

We are currently using WAAS 4.0.17.b.14 to optimize HTTP across the WAN using TFO, DRE and LZ Compression. Does this same WAAS version (or a newer one) support all methods of optimization for HTTPS too?

I have this problem too.

In 4.0.17, you should only configure HTTPS traffic for TFO (TCP Flow Optimization). If you configure HTTPS for full optimization, then you will just be wasting CPU processing and DRE disk space as WAAS can't look inside the encryption. In a future release (4.1.x) there will be SSL decryption available so you can take advantage of full optimization of HTTPS traffic.

The 4.1 release is targeted for August 2008.
