I am using ISA Proxy server running on Win2K. Seems so far so good. Anybody knows how I can use the content filtering features to block unwanted sites? or is there such a feature on ISA?

Make a destination set that list sites you want to block. This is found under Policy Elements
Then you go to Site and Content rules, make a new rule that says deny
Choose deny based on destination
Under Apply this rule to, choose Specified destination set and the choose the destination set you made in the beginning

This blocks access

Thanks for your comment. That will still require me to create a list of sites but I was thinking if ISA has the feature to filter or block based on keywords found either in the web content or the site name. As you know, it is almost impossible to have the list of all the porn or gambling sites so having the server to block it based on keywords such as lolitas, sex,etc..etc.. would be ideal..
I thought I have read somewhere that it can be done on ISA but can't seem to find that part of the configuration.

To do that I believe you have to install some third party software. But have a look at these pages:



They have some script and info that blocks a lot of the pages you want to block

And here you will find some programs that will help you more with content filtering
