trying to bring up wccp on squid-2.3.DEVEL2

  Hi all,

  I was using squid-2.2.STABLE4 as a transparent proxy. I installed
squid-2.3.DEVEL2 on linux 2.2.10 (redhat) and am trying to bring up wccp. I
tried cisco cache engine 550 before and I know how to configure the router,
and it was working with the cache engine.

  I configure squid wccp_router directive and did not configure
wccp_incoming_address and wccp_outgoing_address, because I have only one

  I read FAQ and recompile linux kernel including GRE tunnels, and create a
gre tunnel:

       iptunnel add gre1 mode gre remote <Router-IP> local <Host-IP> dev
       ifconfig gre1 up

  When I enable the wccp on router, it sees the squid wccp host but when I
enable redirect on an interface some packets are redirected but no return.
here is the ifconfig output:

gre1 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr .... <snipped>...
          RX packets:232 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0

seems there is a RX packet error ... but how ? what can I do ???
