Web Filtering software for Citrix

We have a Citrix server farm.  We also have a PIX Firewall.  We run SurfControl for web filtering.  Surf Control does handle name resolution for citrix.  It blocks websites as it is supposed to though.  The problem is that when we try to run reports on we traffic, we get incorrect usernames.

What are other people using for website filtering over Citrix??

I use Websense with my pix....It's expensive but it has a ton of reporting features...as well as logging to SQL.

You will need to setup a proxy server (for example = Microsoft ISA Server) that channels internet traffic before it goes through the firewall.  Make sure the proxy server intergrates with SurfControl.  This is the solution the Websense uses for Citrix users.
