Thanks. I'll go the intercept route so I'll pass on the WCCP setup for now. What auth method would you folks suggest. Easiest to setup? Once i get this going with WPAD and PAC, I'll look at a second box for squid as don't want users to not connect to the Internet if the Squid box dies.

>Guess I can't use authentication with a transparent setup. Will have to investigate intercept proxy. I'm trying to use Cisco WCCP via our Cisco 5505's so if I go intercept proxy and the Squid server goes offline, Internet traffic can still go through.
