Any idea how this autodiscovery works in a redundant setup? where i have 2 WAE in the Head office and 2 WAE in the DR site. How will the 2 WAE in the HO peer with the 2 WAE int he remote site?
Autodiscovery of WAAS Devices
Cisco WAAS includes an autodiscovery feature that enables WAEs to automatically locate peer WAEs on your network. After autodiscovering a peer device, the WAEs can terminate and separate the LAN-to-WAN TCP connections and add a buffering layer to resolve the differing speeds. Once a WAE establishes a connection to a peer WAE, the two devices can establish an optimized link for TCP traffic, or pass the traffic through as unoptimized.
The autodiscovery of peer WAAS devices is achieved using proprietary TCP options. These TCP options are only recognized and understood by WAAS devices and are ignored by non-WAAS devices.
