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.

Switch is not redirecting anything. access.log is empty. Have to look the
extended acls cause Cisco is not saying anything about them. Assumed that
the line
"ip wccp web-cache redirect in" on vlan1 will redirect all http traffic. 
Thank you
