I am trying to utilize Bluecoat web filtering by using WCCP from a Cisco Firewall ASA 5510.  Are there any suggestions as to setup or configurations?  Attached you will find a simple diagram of my infrastructure.

Here is a working config.

I was reading the deployment guide for WCCP on the ASA and I found this.
WCCP redirect is supported only on the ingress of an interface. The only topology that the security appliance supports is when client and cache engine are behind the same interface of the security appliance and the cache engine can directly communicate with the client without going through the security appliance.

My testing showed this to be true; the only way I was able to get WCCP working on the ASA was to have the cache attached to the same interface that the client traffic entered the ASA (inside). There does not appear to be a way to get WCCP working for a device attached to a DMZ port when client traffic enterers the ASA from the inside interface.

ASA Configuration;

access-list wccp extended permit tcp host any log debugging ( is my client machine)
access-list wccp extended permit tcp any log debugging ( is my server subnet)
wccp 90 redirect-list wccp
wccp interface inside 90 redirect in
wccp interface SHNet 90 redirect in (this is the port that my server subnet is connected to)
