Else then the error is it redirecting the traffic?
i have tested wccp2 on a router and gre but not on a switch and L2 yet.
on the cisco you also need to apply extended acls based on www port to
match the specific traffic you want to redirect into squid.
if you wont do that the web-cache wont redirect anything.
