We are currently using Checkpoint at our head office and one of our remote sites. There is a site to site VPN and users at teh remote site use Checkpoint user accounts and Radius authentication for Internet access. Not all site personnel are allowed internet access.
We will be changing shortly to a full ASA, TACACS setup at head office with an MPLS connection to the remote site. Of course the timing of the MPLS installation is horrible. The Checkoint SPLAT box at the remote site is failing.
We would like to install an ASA5510 at the remote site. The VPN setup can be done, but I don't yet know how I can control Internet access at the site. Can this be done with an ASA or do I need some type of proxy server.

Hi, the ASA can be configured with "cut-through proxy" to challenge a user at the application layer and then authenticate against standard AAA servers or the local database.

This can be used together with filtering databases like Websense, integrated with LDAP, AD etc etc

This is probably what I want. Can you point me to any documentation on this?
We have not yet ordered the 5510 so I don't have manuals yet.

Try this link:

This is very useful together with per-user downloadable ACL's for example.
