 Iam an Customer Support Engineer at one of my clients place it is a network with 20 systems with windows2000 server and the clients are windows98. I am looking for a software which can record all the web sites visited by the users on the Networks since all the users have the Internet access. And also want any proxy software to block the sites.

Starr internet monitor is a perfect program for you to use. It runs in the background as a service and records all internet traffic and mails this to the person who want's to receive these mails.
It from a different owner now. See website http://www.actmon.com/

Well, if you want a Proxy Server AND a Content Filter, and you're an M$ shop - you really ought to look into ISA Server from M$.  http://www.microsoft.com/isaserver/

ANother alternative. We use it, and it is working *great*

It supports content filtering and user reporting. It can filter *anyting* can even allow you access between certains hours, and access to only certain sites, or access to certain type of download.. (can download .mp3, but not .exe, etc..)

well, to put the opensource solution(s) out there for you:

The proxy
squid:
www.squid-cache.org

The content manager
dansguardian:

Reporting options
sarg:
http://sarg.sourceforge.net/

SquidFire
http://squidfire.sourceforge.net/

SRG

This will require a moderate amount of *nix knowledge, and at least some linux knowledge to make it work.  I was able to setup a working transparent proxy solution here that intercepted web traffic, sent it to a content manager web proxy, and took all other traffic and passed it through the firewall.  We're able to do content management and destination path segregation (similar to static routes) from a single linux server that is recoverable within minutes.

If you arent comfortable setting this up, you could always hire a consultant and show them this stuff.  Having been a consultant myself for years, let me warn you that if you DO opt for an opensource consultant, *go with these programs here.*  One of the things that makes opensource consultants different from say, a MS solutions consultant, is that they have about 500x's more things to pick from.  What I'm suggesting here is very tried and true for multiple multi-million dollar, medium-large scale companies.
