WCCP Service Groups

Hello,

I'm working on a project to create new wccp service group IDs since we are adding two new CE(Websense Content Engines). Currently, we have a service group (0,5, and 70) with ACLs to redirect traffic to specific CE. I reviewed the below post listed below and wanted to find out what service group IDs can I use to redirect traffic to the new CE if I have already used service group IDs 0,5,70 (http, ftp, https)?

 

Thanks in advance,

~zK

Re: WCCP Service Groups

That's really a function of the hardware you're using on either end.

Assuming you're using a ASA as the router, you can use 90-97.

Thanks for your input, Ken!

 

We platform we're using is the ASA5585. Is there a cisco doc that list what service group id are available or can be used?

 

Thanks in advance,

I am often in the WSA beta programs so I've used most of 90-97 at one time or another.

Re: WCCP Service Groups

NP... another question, is service group range 90-97 considered a dynamic service group or well-known service group?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Service 90-97 user configurable

User-defined WCCP services that support up to eight ports for each WCCP service. When you configure these user-defined services, you must specify whether to redirect the traffic to the HTTP caching application, to the HTTPS application, or to the streaming application on the content engine.

Dynamic Service Range.

You can pick any 8 ports you want.

I actually run my production WSA using WCCP for 80, 443, 8080 and 8443 using service group #90

Re: WCCP Service Groups

Thanks again for your answer. So, once I have picked out the service groups, i.e. 90, 95, and 97; how would the ASA know what type of traffic each service group is associated with (port 80, port 443, etc...)? Based on the Cisco link below, these service groups need to be identified by CE first, is that correct?

 

Thanks, ~zK

Re: WCCP Service Groups

What ports to send over is defined in the config of the WSA, when it "subscribes" to the WCCP.
