Anyway, following are the steps that you need to take to configure irrespective of the software. You need to have following information ready with you:
Content IP address
IP network mask
Gateway IP address
Domain Name System (DNS) name server IP address
Step1: You need to do the initial configuration, like host name, domain name, admin passwords, etc., mentioned above. This can be done either by going to enable mode (if you have configured it earlier) or through the dialogues which are asked by the software when it is booted for the first time or after a factory reset.
Step 2: Now you need to enable WCCP. Software on your cache engine may support either version one or version two. I am giving you steps for version one. In case you need it for version two, do let me know:
In global configuration mode you need to do "ip wccp enable."
router(config)# ip wccp enable
Step 3:In interface config mode, you need to do "ip web-cache redirect" at all interfaces that are an outgoing interface to the Internet/intranet or to any other zone:
router(config-if)# ip web-cache redirect
That is all is needed. You can verify your config by using "show ip wccp" or "show stat" commands.
