NME-WAE-502-K9 configuration question

Unanswered Question
Jul 14th, 2008

Hi,

It is not clear to me from the configuration guide how we configure WCCP using WAE-502 module which is embedded on the 2811 router, and especially the concept of subinterfaces. I understand when the WAAS is an external appliance connected to the router, but what happens when the card is embedded?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have this problem too.

You configure the interface for the integrated service module as a normal interface on the router (Ip addresses, etc.). Then you configure the NME's IP address and the default gateway from the router. Then you should be able to ping the device, and you can either session into the module from the router or telnet directly to the device like an appliance.

A very helpful guide is posted here...

Hope that helps,

Thanks for the info.For performing basic WAN acceleration is it mandatory to use WAAS Manager or we could do it with 2x NME-WAE-502s ?

Hi Spyros,

The Central Manager (CM)is a mandatory part of every WAAS installation. It allows you to have a single HTTPS address from which you manage all the WAEs.

The CM demonstrates it true worth when you consider having to scale up your implemenation and you start using Groups to manage your configurations across regions and timezones.

Hope this helps and adds to Dan's spot-on answer to your initial question.
