I've been trying to setup a WAE 612 w/ ACNS 5.5.5, and I've run into a few problems. The goal is to setup a transparent forward proxy for WMT files. This is a standalone unit. The edge router that this device is hooked up to is a Cisco 7206VXR running IOS 12.4(12).
Initially, I configured WCCP outbound redirects on the WAN facing port of our edge router, and WCCP traffic seemed to be generated between the content engine and the router. `show statistics wccp gre,` it would return something like the following:
Transparent GRE packets received: 54919
Transparent non-GRE packets received: 0

Packets fragmented for bypass: 21
Packet pullups needed: 21
Packets dropped due to no route found: 0
Unfortunately, when the clients attempted to call up a WMT video, it would go through the process of buffering, initializing, and going to a ready state; but the video would not play. The 'show statistics wmt all' would only increment the error counter with each play attempt; none of the other statistics from this command would change.
Next I attempted to just set this up as a non-transparent WMT proxy and configured an individual test Windows 9 Media client to reference the WAE as an RTSP proxy. It experienced the same problem as above. 'show statistics wmt all' would still only show error count increases with each attempted video, but nothing else would increment. This leads me to believe that the problem is not WCCP related, but something with my WAE configuration. I can successfully traceroute from my WAE to the video server; likewise, I can traceroute without problems from the WAE to my Windows media client machine.
Also, when I do commands such as 'show statistics mediafs,' the values for 'space used by WMT proxy' sometimes increments for an attempt to load a video; at best, the increase is about 12KB.
