use cisco asdm to forward selected users to squid proxy


I have a Cisco router asa 5505 and using ASDM I want to redirect some of our users (based on ip range preferably) to a server that is running squid as a web cache. If anyone can help point me in the right direction for this I would be very grateful as I am primarily a web developer and thus out of my comfort zone in this.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm not sure if this feature is supported as low as the 5505, but if it is, the config is quite simple:

access-list wccp extended permit tcp eq www (fill in your addresses of course)
access-list wccp_cache extended permit ip host <ip address of web cache> any
wccp web-cache redirect-list wccp group-list wccp_cache
wccp interface inside web-cache redirect in

You'll have to register the router as a wccp-router on your cache engine.
Small typo in the first line of the access-lists:

access-list wccp extended permit tcp any eq www (forgot the destination any).

Is there a graphical part to do this? Would I have to alter the ip address on the first line for every IP or can I somehow put a range in here?
There might be a graphical way to do it, but I'm afraid I don't know it. Maybe someone else can answer that. That said, the command line version is just a matter of getting the access-list right and cut and paste the rest.

You can put a range if it's summarizable by wildcard masks.

For example hosts - 79 would be

You should know wildcardmasking before you do this, so if not the easiest is if you just use one line for each host:

access-list wccp extended permit tcp host any eq www
access-list wccp extended permit tcp host any eq www

And so on.

I'm a web developer in a group of 3 that has suddenly gained IT department status so we're trying to catch up on things. Not a clue about wildcard masks but I will read up and decide if I will go that route or not. Thanks
