Configure WCCP on a 4510 switch

I have to configure an instance of a WCCP on a 4510 switch and I have to admit  have read the examples given by Cisco but dont have understanding of the example config

Router(config)#

ip wccp web-cache group-address 224.1.1.100 password alaska1

I have attached the config in question above and could someone please clarify what the group address  224.1.1.100 is ?

Many Thanks

Mark

The multicast address is used when you have multiple routers/L3 switches using the same service group. So instead of the cache engines having to send protocol messages to each router you can use a multicast address instead.

It is optional and you don't necessarily need to use it if you only have on L3 device actually responsible for WCCP.

In addtion where are the clients in relation to the proxy eg. which vlan(s) etc.

It is for HTTP and HTTPs and the clients are on a Layer 3 Vlan if that helps

Thanks

web-cache is for http only. You could use this and then use a service group for https but it might be easier to simply use a service group for both so -

client vlan = vlan 10 = 192.168.5.0/24

4500 config

=========

ip wccp redirect list 101 password

int vlan 10

ip wccp redirect in

access-list 101 permit tcp 192.168.5.0 0.0.0.255 any eq http

access-list 101 permit tcp 192.168.5.0 0.0.0.255 any eq https

note if you use a password then obviously this needs to be configured on the proxy as well.

The above assumes the proxy is not in vlan 10.

Sorry, the syntax should be "redirect-list" not "redirect list"

Does it give you that option ?

Whay happens is I enable wccp version 2 and then syntax prompts 3 options

<0-254>    Dynamically defined service identifier number

  version    protocol version

  web-cache  Standard web caching service

<0-254>    Dynamically defined service identifier number

  version    protocol version

  web-cache  Standard web caching service

Do you mean when you do -

"ip wccp ?"

If so see previous answer where i posted the configuration  ie. you need to define a service group number, any number is fine in that range.

If not then what IOS version and supervisor are you using ?

Jon

The syntax i have is "ip wccp 0 group-list proxy_users (which is my access list to specify who goes through proxy) and then I get prompted to add group address ????

Highlighted

its IOS 12.2 (54)SG1 and supervisor 1V

and its a cisco 4507 switch
