SBS 2003 Internet usage reports

I am getting the internet usage report currently.  It shows me by machine how many hours the employees are on the internet.  What I would like to see is what sites they are visiting and how often.  Are there any more indepth reports that I can access?

To really get a good idea would would need to setup a proxy server such as Squid or Winproxy.

http://www.squid-cache.org/

http://www.winproxy.com/

These are both free and do a pretty good job. For a large scale you can look at bluecoat but that seemsas though it would be overkill if your running SBS.

Hi just one idea..if you have access to the clients files.
the index.dat of your users shows everything they do.
View the contents of those obscured index.dat files and see what information Windows is keeping about you and your Internet activity.

This shows where it is hidden:
Index.dat file--What is Index.dat file ?

Are you running SBS Standard or Premium?

I have just installed ISA Server 2004 so I will let you know how these work.
OK, ISA is a whole nother animal so I think that this post is over.

I will award Jeff the Points and then open an ISA question.
I'd suggest that if you post in ISA, that you also put a 20pt Pointer Question in the SBS Topic Area.
