WCCP 61 and 62 for WAAS?

Unanswered Question

What if, I wanted to use TWO wan optimizing pieces of hardware--One WAAS and one another vendor? Both "Head-End" devices would need to use a WCCP redirect off the same GIG and POS interace (with a different ACL and WCCP number) BUTTTT..the problem it seems, is the Cisco WAAS devices will only use 61 and 62 in promiscuous mode...while other vendors can do numbered modes...is this true? Or can you do something like


ip wccp 10 redirect in <--Cisco waas

ip wccp 20 redirect in <--vendor2


Thanks for any help

Hi Alan,

WAAS currently only supports service groups 61/62. Note that these numeric designations are really just identifiers, and don't impact order of operations or anything else. So long as the 'vendor2' device above uses some other service group numbers besides 61/62, you should be fine.

Also note that if you are configuring WCCP on a software-based platform (ISR, 7200, etc.), you will also need to configure the global command 'ip wccp check services all'.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
