Squid with WCCP

By a.aomar ·
Dear Masters,
First of all i would like to thank you for your support either by giving an answer or even reading my question . well lets go directly to the point i am trying to configure a web cache server Squid useing Fedora Linux and i choesed to work it out with a WCCP because i will be useing a Cisco Router 1700 that support WCCP my question is where exactuly to put the squid to complete my configuration ..( i mean the requested address from the client should be going first to the Squid and if its not cached it goes to the cisco as the internet gateway or should it go first to the cisco and it directs it to the Squid cache and if its not cached it goes back to the cisco to get it from the internet????

i know that i am not talanted in writing question ..but your answer will be highly appreciated if its ASAP:)

Best regards,

You set up your clients (IE, Netscape, etc.) to use proxy server and configure browsers with Squid's IP address. Internet traffic goes to Squid first, then to the router/gateway.
