WCCP redirection thru Cat 3550 EMI and Cacheflow.

Dear all,

Anybody has an experience how to redirect traffic to cache engine in this case my is CacheFlow SG-800.We have followed documentation by Cisco 3550 and WCCP on how-to and also from Cacheflow for simple redirection. But it did not work for some reason.

Cacheflow did mention in their old websites ( b4 become BlueCoat) with this configuration. I believe at that time they do it via router as there is no L3/L4 switches at that time.

In CacheFlow Box create this config.WCCP version 2 configuration file:

wccp enable

wccp version 2

service-group web-cache


interface 0


And in Cisco Router.

To configure WCCP version 2 standard redirection enter the following

commands from the CLI:

Router# configure terminal

Router(config)# ip wccp web-cache

Router(config)# interface serial 0/0

Router(config-if)# ip wccp web-cache redirect out

But we do not create this at our Cisco Cat3550EMI switches. We follow doc from Cisco 3550EMI and WCCP

Thank you.


Re: WCCP redirection thru Cat 3550 EMI and Cacheflow.

The 3550 does have a mechanism to do WCCP redirection. You will have to configure the command 'ip wccp web-cache redirect in' on the ports connected to the clients. See this link for a more detailed example. There are quite a few commands to verify whether WCCP works correctly :
