ACNS - WCCP - HTTPS

I need some quick direcion on transperent caching limitations.

What is the advantages to tunneling HTTPS traffic through a content engine? I know you can do this if the content engine is set up in proxy mode but what about transparent proxy mode:

1. Can I transparently tunnel https/ssl through our content engine using WCCP at the edge (without configuring the clients)?

2. If I can what commands on the wccp edge router and ACNS content engine will I need?

3. Can I transparently cache other protocols such as ftp through the content engine using WCCP?

Any direction will be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Jason

Re: ACNS - WCCP - HTTPS

I found out I can only redirect transparenly HTTP and Real-Time Streaming Protocol traffic but I would still like to know the advantages of redirecting https traffic?

Re: ACNS - WCCP - HTTPS

Jason,

I have configured all of the above with my ACNS 5.2 deployment - http, https, ftp via WCCP v2. It is fairly easy.
