IOS WCCP and 7.2 Configuration

If you're having difficulties configuring WCCP with IOS, this will help you.  It wasn't difficult to turn up, but I was frustrated with the lack of available documentation.

IOS Router Config. 

conf t

access-list 120 deny ip host any

access-list 120 deny ip host <host you don't want filtered>  any

access-list 120 permit tcp any eq www

access-list 120 permit tcp any eq 443

access-list 120 deny ip any any

access-list 10 permit

ip wccp web-cache group-list 10

ip wccp 91 redirect-list 120

int fa1/0.4 (interface on the router closest to clients you're trying to proxy)

  ip wccp 91 redirect in

Troubleshooting your config

show access-list 120 (will show you the hit counts.  You can see if your ACL is even being used)

show ip wccp

Will show the status of packets dropped or redirected and the WCCP protocol version

Also the Router Identifier is the WCCP device you want to define in the Web Gateway.

also "debug ip wccp events" is a good troubleshooting command

Re: IOS WCCP and 7.2 Configuration

Hi James,

You probably need "redirect out" not "redirect in" (for the line ip wccp 91 redirect in).

Here is the Web Gateway WCCP Basic Setup Guide:

Re: IOS WCCP and 7.2 Configuration

I found KB63018 lacking.  Redirect out will break wccp for this particular configuration.

Re: IOS WCCP and 7.2 Configuration

"ip wccp ProcessID redirect out" is not even an option. Our switch will only allow us to "ip wccp ProcessID redirect in"

I also found KB63018 lacking.

Re: IOS WCCP and 7.2 Configuration


My WCCP config above wasn't as efficient as it could have been.  So, I wanted to update my post here. 

You don't need the web-cache statement you can do it all in one statement

ip wccp 91 redirect-list 120 group-list 10

Also, don't get hung up on the Router Identifier when you're troubleshooting.  As long as you have one of the IP addresses of an interface on your router and it's reachable by the MWG,  the MWG doesn't care.  If it drives you crazy, there is a global command to identify the source interface (ip wccp source-interface), but it looks like it doesn't exist in some 15.x versions.
