Transparent proxy with 1941

fosiul01 used Ask the Experts™
I want to buy this router, but before that i need to make sure it will server few of my purpose

From a different question, i know that to get a transparent proxy on this router, i need to use Web Cache Communication Protocol v2

but i have few  confusion.
if i use wccp, the router will work as transparent proxy server, is not it ????  i dont need any other proxy server on the network right ???

is there any gui tool or any other way to get a proxy report (example, which user is browsing which site etc )

You will need to setup a Squid proxy server (http://www.squid-cache.org/)

Here are some setup instructions: http://www.digitalnerds.net/linux/transparent-squid-with-wccp/

If you get the content filter subscription option on the 1941 you can get the transparent proxy without using WCCP, and some reporting capability with the Cisco Configuration Professional GUI.

if i use wccp, will it give transparent capability ? and with wccp, will i get report from GUI ??
WCCP is just a protocol that assists Squid in performing as transparent. There is no GUI unless Squid has one.

As for the Cisco part#, you can search online for it to buy it from an online retailer, or contact a Cisco reseller.
