    Task 2.6


    i have some points regarding this task needs some clarifcation for , 

    Both R1 and R2 performing (ZPFirwalling + Nat + WCCP) ,what is the order of operation for all of these ?

    why http traffic that will get redirected out g0/1.24 on R1 don't cause a state entry for the session ? as all tcp traffic are being inspected ?

    as in the solution pass action is applied for the return traffic !!

    also for the nat i see that the redirected traffic don't subjected for translation at all ! i dont understand this behavior and the documenation is not clear about that .

    thanks in advance

       WCCP is first, but even without that, think about it. When you redirect the packets via WCCP, it clearly mweans the packet does NOT traverse the router but is being redirected, so it makes sense it is not NAT'ed and it is not inspected by the firewall, as the packets being redirected clearly may, in general, not be routed back through the firewall at all, so it is useless to consume resources on the router to create a translation or to create a state entry in the inspection table.

    thanks cristian for your reply , i would thought about it this way if the WCCP redirection service was applied on the inside interface IN direction ,but it was applied on the outside interface out direction so i thought according to order of operation it will inspected first then natted , but i will keep that in mind, WCCP always first .
