Hi friends,

I have a small satellite office that has approx 20 users using a NAT ADSL connection without a proxy server, they connect directly to the firewall as their gateway.  I wish to implement a proxy server to monitor and restrict these users (or IP addresses) from going to certain sites and maybe restrict bandwidth for certain users.  Please give your opinions on what is the best approach for my requirements or any better alternatives.  Thanks

First choice would be MS ISA2004 as a Proxy server if you have a Windows domain and a spare server.
Else, CCProxy is a good low-end product:

Else, the defacto standard is "squid" that you can get for linux or Windows
