I am facing some issue with bluecoat for caching. When i do the WCCP configuration on normal switch it works fine. Users can access the internet but when i configure WCCP on ASA the i can't see any traffic redirected. Details are as follows:

Physical topology:

Bluecoat------->Cat 6509E-------->Cat 6506E------->Cat2960--------->ASA5540

Logical topology:


Bluecoat IP:

Bluecoat GW: IP)

ASA5540 Configs:

access-list 101 extended permit ip any any

access-group 101 in interface WIRELESS

interface GigabitEthernet0/1.57

vlan 57


security-level 50

ip address standby

AT-INET-FW# sh run | in wccp

wccp web-cache

wccp interface WIRELESS web-cache redirect in

AT-INET-FW# show wccp

Global WCCP information:

    Router information:

        Router Identifier:                   -not yet determined-

        Protocol Version:                    2.0

    Service Identifier: web-cache

        Number of Cache Engines:             0

Please let me know what could be the possible issue? Am i missing any configuration step in this?

Does it matter to connect the bluecoat with ASA directly? Or the logical connectivity i had mentioned above is fair enough?

Can you confirm the IP addresses of your devices?  It seems like you may have them reversed.

Actually that was a typing error. Bluecoat IP is and ASA IP is's and users gateway is ASA IP and there is where i had configured WCCP but it's not working

The configuration looks fine.  From the output you provided, it doesn't look like the ASA is getting the HIA messages from the Bluecoat proxy.

Can you enable debug wccp events and debug wccp packets on the ASA so we can tell what's going on?

I had shifted the Bluecoat to the perimeter router and it's working fine.
