Hi all,

can anyone recommend a proxy server that will do the following

act as a firewall
block ports and urls at specific times and equally allow at specific times
log in detail what domain users are viewing online and what times pages etc

we do have isa, but its more of a pain than anything else

if anyone could suggest free options and paid options that would be great

THanks

So you want to get rid of the best firewall/application gateway/proxy on the market - and get something else?
ISA can be a pain if you are not trained in its use or you do not read all the guides and associated help files, thats a fair point but what makes you think another product will be any different?

oopps....sorry.....my mistake :)

Squid can also be Integrated with domain......Though you need administrator trained for squid otherwise it has more pains.... what about a hardware UTM box like Juniper SSG-5. It can serve multiple purposes..

well ISA is good up to the point of user monitoring, then its limited i thought there may be something better on the market

at the moment for user monitoring i use a query to run on live then copy the days results into excel then i have to break it down

i was looking fo something that i could just click a user and it would show me what theyd been on in the day

the reports on isa suck too, is there any add ons or anything that can monitor what users are donig better?

Thanks
