Please tell us which product you are using and the version.

Eg.  ServerIron ADC 1008 ver 12.0c or do a 'show version' and post the results.

sorry for the late responce (but you will not like it anyway )

WCCP is implemented in the ServerIron products (I think) - I am sure that the MG8 cannot do that.

Question,

Can packets pass through from the Foundry MG8 Big Iron and have the WCCP v2.0 on the Cisco ASA 5540 Firewall to redirect communication to the Websense appliance?

Hi Janet,

     Yes that will work so long as default gateway on the MG8 points to the Cisco ASA.

Thanks

Michael
