We have users that are abusing the internet facility, and we need to restrict acces to certain web sites.
Where do we check what web sites are being hit?
How do we stop the users from going to these sites?
Regards,
Eugene

This is a massive question. May be worth upping the points a touch.

Can you give us an overview of your current setup?

Currently my customers are using sbs 2003 with ±50 users.
There are they odd one or 2 users that are making use of company equipment to download movies, mp3's etc. This we have to stop!
I would like to know in which log files to check as to which sites are being visited, so that we can block them from these sites via the firewall. I am sure that a report can be generated via tools within microsoft to let us have this information.
Regards,
Eugene

Okay, where is the proxy hosted and what program is it?

The proxy is where any logs of this kind would exisit.

It appears that there is not website log/filter built into the MS SBS 2003, and you would need to swap to a different proxy application if you want to start logging your net traffic. Try out a product called CC Proxy and see if that is any good.
