Does IPv6 traffic "pass-through" or "drop" by cisco waas?

Since cisco waas is not yet supported IPv6, if i am running IPv4 and IPv6 dual stack mode on the same circuit, does IPv6 traffic get dropped by the waas or does waas put IPv6 traffic in "pass-through" mode and let it goes?  I am thinking, waas will treat IPv6 as non-IP traffic and will let it goes.  Am i right?

Hi Joe,

WAAS can forward the traffic and support interoperability between IPv6 networks but cannot accelerate it.

Hi Joe and Kanwai,

 

One note though - if your running WCCP as the redirection mode, you won't get the IPv6 traffic redirected, as WCCP does NOT support IPv6. Hence you won't see IPv6 traffic at all on the WAAS device.
