Using ISA Server 2000 To Block Instant Messaging AIM, MSN, ICQ, YAHOO, ETC...

I want to know how to block Instant Messaging with ISA Server 2000.

I want to know about ISA SERVER 2000 techniques specifically.
I am new to ISA and these are some of the things I need to handle as quickly as possible so I am asking for help.

The top ones I am concerned with are AIM, MSN, YAHOO, ICQ.

the gfi web filter will only monitor web traffic it will not allow you to block anything.

Thanks but I do not think I can use that approach because I do not have the  ISA clients installed I have configured the WPAD file for  autodiscovery.

PLease let me know if this would work without the clients installed or if you have any other ideas.

Managing Security Policy in a Changing Environment

The enterprise network environment is evolving rapidly as companies extend their physical data centers to embrace cloud computing and software-defined networking. This new reality means that the challenge of managing the security policy is much more dynamic and complex.

There are plenty of downloadable filters that can help solve this problem.  The GFI one is good.

GFI Download Security will allow me to block files, However I was hoping for a more cost efective (FREE) solution.
I do not know if the rest of you have to deal with a no budget attitude but that is what I am up against constantly.

I am new to this.
Do I accept these responses as they come in or accept the one that works for me which will give that person the points???

Thanks

There's a help button in the top right hand corner which tells you these sorts of things.
Keep the Q open as long as you want.  Once your satisfied with an answer or answers, you can accept them.
