How to configure WCCP or equivalent on HP12500 / HP7500 / HP 5800

Hi There,

 

I need to configure the protocol WCCP (a Cisco proprietary protocol) on a HP 12500  switch of my core network.

 

I don´t know wich is the name of the protocol on HP and I´m looking for this information in order to configure.

 

Is anybody can help me with that??

One more information that I think is important...

 

I need to configure because we´re implement Blue Coat to manager ou corporate Internet access.

 

Tks

Hi Adriano

 

In my opinion there is no standard equavilent to Cisco WCCP, especially not implemented to Comware.

 

But maybe someone knows it better.

Thanks

 

 I´m thinking about the workaround is PBD - Policy base Routing

 

What do you think about?

 

I.E

 

10.132.0.25 - A Workstation

10.132.3.1 - The IP Address of Bluecoat

 

 

 

1. Create an acl based on the source

 

#

acl number 2000
 rule 0 permit source 10.132.0.25 0
#

 

2. Create a PBD and set the next hop to the Blue Coat.

 

policy-based-route bluecoat permit node 100
   if-match acl 2000
   apply ip-address next-hop 10.132.3.1
#

 

Best Regards

Adriano

Hi Adriano

 

WCCP provides much more feature then PBR.

 

But if it works and meets your requirement then PBR is an easy and stable solution. Your config should work, you only have to apply it to an vlan-interface:

 

vlan interface x

  ip policy-based-routing bluecoat

 

 

But I suggest you to apply an acl which only redirect webtrafftif like http, https, etc to the bluecoat. For that you need an advanced acl (3000-3999). For Example:

 

acl number 3000

 rule 10 permit tcp source 10.132.0.25 0 destination-port eq 80

 rule 20 permit tcp source 10.132.0.25 0 destination-port eq 443

Hi Manuel,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

 

I´ll try your suggestion. I was looking for if for HP Devices exist an equivalent protocol like the WCCP for Cisco but I couldn´t  find yet, that´s way now i´m trying to work with PBR.

 

I´ll let you if works fine.

 

Thanks again..
