You need the advanced proxy addon for IPCop.  you then need to ensure that the proxy function is working transparently.....that way, no user intervention is required to configure the proxy (the machines will use the proxy when inside the firewall, and not when they are outside.


You can use urlfilter to blacklist specific sites - http://www.urlfilter.net/

Hope this helps.

What do you mean "to use usernames in active directory to allow users access to the internet"? To which kind of "active directory" are you referring?

As mentioned, the advanced proxy plugin supports AD authentication :)
