ASA URL FILTER AND WCCP

Hello to everybody,

I have a Cisco ASA with csc-ssm.

I need to configure wccp on the asa and I want to use csc-ssm for url filtering.

So the question is: 

"May I perform the url filtering to the client requests using csc-ssm before they get the cache server?"

 

thank you very much

Please check this link: http:

Please check this link: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/asa91/configuration/general/asa_91_general_config/basic_wccp.html#37863

Especially this part: 

  • "TCP intercept, authorization, URL filtering, inspect engines, and IPS features are not applied to a redirected flow of traffic."

Packets classified for WCCP will not go through CSC-SSM but will be redirected to cache-server first. So you are better off doing URL filtering at cache server. Hope this helps!

 

Thanks,

Chetan
