Description (partial)

HTTPS traffic with authentication on non standard port (non 443) will be dropped

1. WCCP is in use
2. HTTPs proxy is configured to listen to non standard port (e.g. 8443)
3. Authentication is needed.

Then the WSA will redirect for authentication to port 8443. Because 8443 is on https listening ports, authentication packets from clients will be dropped.
