    for monitoring your employees there is no better software IMO than Spector CNE it allows a full report of everthing your employees do, not just web browsing.

    but for a proxy there are numerous around but spector is what i would invest in, and just use a bog standard proxy even as low as which is freeware that will provide access permissions and caching functionality, along with Spector is a good solution

    Is this something you want to install on each workstation or on a central server? It'll be a lot easier for them to get around if on their workstation. I use surfcontrol ( at work and it is great, but rather expensive.

    yeah, most proxy software is very easy to install and configure, however Squid is a fantastic proxy but was originally designed to run on Linux, and the config on the windows version is as user unfreindly as the linux version in IMHO
