Hello All,

I have a 6500 and an ASA installed. I need to proxy http traffic to a 3rd party Web filter before it hits the ASA. How do i accomplish this? Do i use WCCP? If so, what version?

Hi Giuseppe,

Thanks a lot for the response. The 3rd party device is a Web filter that doesnt support WCCP. I think I will have to fo the PBR route. Where do I have to set the route-map policy? Is it on the firewall VLAN interface or on all VLAN's where I have clients connected?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Hello George,

PBR has to be applied inbound so you need it on the internal interfaces where traffic originated by clients is received.

The web filter/cache has to be reachable through a separate L3 interface

Hope to help

Hi Giuseppe,

If I understand this right, I will have to put the policy map on each and every VLAN and the IP address of the web filter should be on a different VLAN, correct?
