Internet Monitoring Software

I am the IT consultant for a firm with about 35 pc's. They have a Windows 2000 Server, and a mix of OS's at the workstations (Win 98 / ME / XP Home / XP Pro). They have a fast cable internet connection coming through a Netgear Cable / DSL Router. I have been asked to find which software (not too complicated, but thorough) to use for monitoring employee internet activity. Does anyone have any suggestions?
What are the steps involved in implementing something like this? Degree of difficulty?

Thanks.

Ashish

If they are using ISA server to go through for internet connectivity. then take a look at GFI ISA/Web monitor at www.gfi.com   Its a free utility out there to monitor the web sites they visit on a per user basis, as well as graphs for what time of the day they are viewing the web.

We are using Surfcontrol, it works *GREAT*.

You can give/restrict access to employess by: IP, Mac Address or User Name.

You can also restrict access to sites/categories/download/streaming, etc...

There is also nice reporting features.. there is a free evaluation version.

It was the best product we reviewed..

I have used both surf control and websense extensively.  I have found websense to be easier to set up and manage.

Websense can monitor and/or restric web access, not to mention monitor/restric access on any tcp or udp port.
