I have a network where the Core switches are connected to the WAN router via the WAE appliance running in inline mode. This network is running fine but due to some recent requirements, the core switches need to do the routing.
So in doing that I would be bringing the default gateway from the router LAN interface to the core switches's SVI (with HSRP). And would be using the uplink from the core switches (running another HSRP) to the router via the WAE on a different subnet altogether (/29 mask) with default & static routing in place on the switches and router respectively.
Now i wanted to confirm that in making these changes, the WAE can work fine and keep optimizing the traffic for all the VLANs hanging off the core switches as long as they are traversing through it or do I need to have the WAE to run in wccp mode instead. I wanted to make minimal changes possible.
