This document describes version 2.0 of the Web Cache Communication
Protocol (WCCP). The WCCP V2.0 protocol specifies interactions between
one or more routers and one or more web-caches. The purpose of the
interaction is to establish and maintain the transparent redirection
of selected types of traffic flowing through a group of routers. The
selected traffic is redirected to a group of web-caches with the aim
of optimising resource usage and lowering response times.
The protocol does not specify any interaction between the web-caches
within a group or between a web-cache and a web-server.

how to manipulate these messages.
