Re: WCCP with ASA

Hi,

Could you please explain your setup more clearly.

For WCCP to work across firewalls, you need to open the UDP port 2048 for WCCP communication.

Hope this helps

Re: WCCP with ASA

Thanks Vj

i was doing some research ok the cisco.com and i found that the version of IOS that i use is 7.0 and as far as i knew this version it's not supporting the WCCP i should upgrade it to the 7.2 (please correct me if i am wrong ) and i saw some configuration example

hostname(config)# wccp web-cache

hostname(config)# wccp interface inside web-cache redirect in

but do I still need to open UDP port 2048 ??

thanks

Re: WCCP with ASA

Hi,

You are correct. WCCP is supported only from 7.2 for ASA.

The configuration that you are attempting is correct.

For this scenario you dont need to open any port explicitly for the WCCP traffic.

If you want allow WCCP traffic to pass through a firewall in between then you need to allow the specific port.

Hope this helps.
