Figure 1
The Cisco WAE inline network adapter provides an inline traffic interception capability for your
appliance. When you configure the WAE appliance for inline interception mode, you can set attributes
to control which interfaces are to be used over which VLANs. By default, the adapter operates on all
inline-capable interfaces and VLANs. You can configure the inline redirection feature using the WAAS
4.0.7 CLI or the WAAS 4.0.7 Central Manager GUI.

Product Overview
The WAAS software defines two new interface types: A group interface that represents an inline pair
grouping and a port interface that represents the individual port. These interfaces are referred to as
inlineGroup and inlinePort.
InlineGroup interfaces are numbered using the format slot/group. The slot number is the slot in which
the adapter is inserted. (In the WAE 500 series and 600 series appliances, you must install the adapter in
slot 1 only.) The group number is either 0 or 1 (each adapter has 2 group pairs). The group number is
displayed on the adapter label.
InlinePort interfaces are numbered slot/group/lan or slot/group/wan. The last attribute is the LAN or
WAN designator.
The inline network adapter also includes an onboard programmable watch dog timer (WDT) controller
that allows you to set the time to wait after a failure event, such as a power outage or a kernel crash,
before the unit begins to operate in mechanical bypass mode. In mechanical bypass mode, traffic is
bridged between the LAN and WAN ports of each group. Mechanical bypass mode prevents the WAE
from becoming a single point of failure and allows traffic to continue to flow between the router and the
client while it passes through an unresponsive WAE without being processed.
For more information about configuring the inline network adapter, see the Cisco Wide Area Application
Services Configuration Guide.

electric shock by shorting out interior components.
•
Use the product only with other Cisco-approved equipment.
•
Allow the product to cool before removing covers or touching internal components.
•
Use the correct external power source. Operate the product only from the type of power source
indicated on the electrical ratings label. If you are not sure of the type of power source required,
consult your service representative or local power company.
•
Use only approved power cables. If you have not been provided with a power cable for your
Content Engine or for any AC-powered option intended for your system, purchase a power cable that
is approved for use in your country. The power cable must be rated for the product and for the
voltage and current marked on the product’s electrical ratings label. The voltage and current rating
of the cable should be greater than the ratings marked on the product.
•
To help prevent electric shock, plug the system components and peripheral power cables into
properly grounded electrical outlets. These cables are equipped with three-prong plugs to help
ensure proper grounding. Do not use adapter plugs or remove the grounding prong from a cable.
•
Do not use appliance or voltage converters or kits sold for appliances with your product.
•
To help protect your system components from sudden, transient increases and decreases in electrical
power, use a surge suppressor or line conditioner.
•
Position cables and power cords carefully; route cables and the power cord and plug so that they
cannot be stepped on or tripped over. Be sure that nothing rests on your system components’ cables
or power cord.
•
Do not modify power cables or plugs. Consult a licensed electrician or your power company for site
modifications. Always follow your local or national wiring rules.

Important Operational Notes
Protecting Against Electrostatic Discharge
Static electricity can harm delicate components inside your system. To prevent static damage, discharge
static electricity from your body before you touch any of your system’s electronic components. You can
do so by touching an unpainted metal surface on the chassis.
You can also take the following steps to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge (ESD):
•
Limit your movement. Movement can cause static electricity to build up around you.
•
When transporting a sensitive component, first place it in an antistatic container or packaging.
•
Just before unwrapping the antistatic packaging, be sure to discharge static electricity from your
body by touching it to an unpainted metal part of the system unit for at least 2 seconds.
•
Remove the adapter from its packaging and install it directly into your system unit without setting
it down. If it is necessary to set the adapter down, place it in its static-protective package. Do not
place the adapter on your system unit cover or on a metal table.
•
Handle all sensitive components in a static-safe area. If possible, use antistatic floor pads and
workbench pads.
•
Handle the adapter carefully, holding it by its edges or its frame.
•
Do not touch solder joints, pins, or exposed printed circuitry.
•
Do not leave the adapter where others can handle and possibly damage the adapter.
•
Take additional care when handling adapters during cold weather because heating reduces indoor
humidity and increases static electricity.
Important Operational Notes
If you intend to reconfigure an edge or core WAE with a Cisco WAE inline network adapter installed in
it as a Central Manager device, first remove the inline network adapter. The inline network adapter is not
supported in a Central Manager appliance.

Step 3
Connect all external cables and power cords to the appliance, and then plug the power cords into a
properly grounded electrical outlet.
Cabling
The inline network adapter ships with two types of cables: crossover and straight-through. When you
connect the WAE inline network adapter, the cable that you use depends on the link speed (Gigabit
Ethernet or Fast Ethernet) and the types of devices (DCE or DTE) being connected.
Note
You must retain the same link speed from one end of the connection to the other end. Inline adapter
interfaces are able to autonegotiate link speeds. If you configure any of your connecting interfaces for
Fast Ethernet (whether on a switch or a router), your WAE inline adapter uses Fast Ethernet. If you
configure any of your connecting interfaces for Gigabit Ethernet, your WAE inline adapter uses Gigabit
Ethernet. Speed and duplex settings are port specific so that two inline ports can negotiate different
speeds independently.

Cabling
Note
We strongly recommend that you do not use half-duplex connections on the WAE or on routers, switches,
or other devices.
If you are connecting a WAE inline appliance between two devices using Gigabit Ethernet, you can use
either straight-through cables, crossover cables, or any combination of the two cable types, regardless of
the type of device. However, for consistency, we recommend that you use straight-through cables for all
Gigabit Ethernet connections.
Table 3 shows the cable requirements for WAE and non-WAE connections when you are using Gigabit
Ethernet end to end.

Some switches support automatic medium-dependent interface crossover (MDIX). You can configure
MDIX by using the mdix auto global configuration switch command. If your switch supports MDIX,
you do not need to follow these cabling rules because MDIX automatically adjusts transmit and receive
pairs when an incorrect cable type (crossover or straight-through) is installed on a 10/100 Fast Ethernet
port. However, when you configure MDIX, you must also configure the port to use autosense (not
manual selection of speed/duplex).
Caution
If you are connecting to Fast Ethernet ports on both the LAN and the WAN sides of the WAE inline
appliance, you must consider the types of devices that are being connected, and you must use the correct
cables. You must follow these cabling instructions for the inline network adapter to work properly. (See
Table 4. For illustrations and examples, see the “Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples for Fast
Ethernet Connections” section on page 29.)
To connect the inline network adapter using the correct cables for Fast Ethernet connections, follow
these steps:
Step 1
Determine the type of cable that you would use for a direct connection between your two end devices
(without a WAE inline network appliance connected between them) by using the following standard
cabling rules:
•
When you are directly connecting two network devices that are similar, such as two switches, use a
crossover cable.

OL-12480-03

Cabling
•
When you are directly connecting two network devices that are different, such as a switch and router,
use a straight-through cable.
Because the inline network adapter has an internal crossover connection that becomes active
when the InlineGroup interface is placed in mechanical bypass mode, you must decide which
cable you would use to connect the two network devices directly, and then you must install the
other cable type (on one side, usually the WAN side of the inline appliance) instead.
Note
Table 4 shows the cable requirements for WAE and non-WAE connections when you are using Fast
Ethernet end to end.

Connect Fast Ethernet ports on both the LAN and the WAN sides of the WAE inline appliance by using
the following cable types:
•
On the LAN side of the connection, use a straight-through cable between the WAE inline appliance
and the network device.
•
On the WAN side of the connection, use the cable that is different from the cable that you would use
to connect the two network devices directly (as determined in Step 1).
For example, if you are connecting a router and a switch (two different devices) through the WAE
inline appliance, use a straight-through cable on the LAN side of the connection and use a crossover
cable on the WAN side of the connection. (If you were connecting the two different devices directly,
you would use a straight-through cable, so use the crossover cable instead.)
If you are connecting two switches (or two similar devices), use straight-through cables on both the
LAN and the WAN sides of the WAE inline appliance.
Figure 20 through Figure 22 show which cables to use for the WAE LAN and WAN connections
between Fast Ethernet ports.

Installation Scenarios and Cabling Examples for Fast Ethernet Connections
WAE appliances can be installed physically between two network devices (such as the branch office
router and branch office LAN switch) by connecting the WAE inline network adapter ports to the
network devices using the proper cables.
If you are connecting a WAE inline appliance between two devices using Gigabit Ethernet, you can use
either straight-through cables, crossover cables, or any combination of the two cable types, regardless of
the type of device. This section shows cabling examples for Fast Ethernet connections only, because Fast
Ethernet has specific cabling requirements.
The inline network adapter has four ports that are divided into two inline groups (see the “Ports and LED
Indicators” section on page 3). The WAE can be physically placed inline between two distinct network
paths, creating redundant WAN links. (See Figure 20.)
Two WAEs with inline network adapters can also be installed back-to-back in a serial fashion between
two network devices for failover purposes. In this serial cluster configuration, if one WAE fails or
becomes overloaded, the other WAE can provide optimization. (See Figure 21.)
Note
When you connect two WAE inline appliances to each other serially, always use a crossover cable
between the two WAEs. (See Figure 22.)
