Control Internet access per user not IP

Last Modified: 2013-12-04

Can someone recommend a good way to filter internet access for a small business? Right now we're using Untangle web filter (free), it does a good job but it works per IP address not per user.
I want to be able to block ftp/smtp on all computers (can also be done at the FW level), some users will have access only to certain web sites, others will have no access at all. Mgmt employees will have full internet access, all internet access must be logged and reported.

This is Windows 2008/2003 server environment with WIn XP pro as workstations. I'd prefer centralized solution free would be best.

Thank you
