I need to set up wccp on a Cisco ASA5540X, but I had a question


Does WCCP intercept ALL http/https traffic passing through the ASA regardless on ingress/egress interface?


Or can it be set up to intercept a range of source IP addresses, or maybe set up to intercept http/https traffic coming in on a specific interface?

WCCP redirection is supported only on the ingress of an interface. The only topology that the adaptive security appliance supports is when client and cache engine are behind the same interface of the adaptive security appliance and the cache engine can directly communicate with the client, without going through the adaptive security appliance.

Yes you can define source ip addresses for http/https traffic to get redirected via ASA.
