I'm trying to assemble WAAS test lab, using virtual workstation (VWS) and server (VSRVR) on seperate VirtualBox VMs.
This is test environment, that I decided to use before I realize that I have no physical routers right now -
And this is my today's head-ache -
I have 2 physical Cisco WAVE-574 acting like Branch (WAAS_Br) and Data Center (WAAS_DC) appliances. I have Cisco WAE-674 as WAAS Central Manager (WAAS_CM).
In GNS3 I have 2 virtual routers Cisco 3640(R_Br and R_DC), with 3 interfaces each.
So, the trace from VWS to VSRVR is -
VWS - R_Br - Host_LB1 - Host_LB2 - R_DC - VSRVR.
On each router I connect to the seperate interface WAAS device, via external NIC on host.
As a result, when wccp is disabled on routers, traffic is flowing normally from VWS to VSRVR (keeping in mind some latency due to all this virtual stuff, appr.40ms). Also, WAAS_Br and WAAS_DC are successfully registered with WAAS_CM.
After enabling wccp services 61 and 62 on routers, traffic gets lost, only first packets of TCP-connections are reaching destination.
