Does anyone know if it is possible to send URL requests that pass through a Cisco ASA Firewall to a syslog server?  I didn't want to get a content filter device, I'm just wanted to log.

I know that it is possible to send URL requests to a WEBSENSE or N2H2 server, but we don't have one of those, all we want is a log of requests and the source IP requesting.  

We do NOT have any special licensing on the ASA.

I don't think this is possible (for the url piece).  You are able to track down via destination IP though.

Alternatively you could use NTOP (www.ntop.org) open source software to track netflows that would automatically do the reverse lookup for you into domain names.  You could also use something like dansguardian open source web content filter and put it in passive mode (if you really don't want content filtering) to track the URLs.

websense isn't an expensive option, and it really does work well -
