I need to setup a solution that will restrict workstation users to the internet based on username and password and monitor where they are going on the internet based on the username. The networks are all windows based domains and using DSL and Cable connection. Any solutions or recommendations are welcome.

Thanks

Might want to give the ISA server 120 day evaluation a try from Microsoft:  http://www.microsoft.com/isaserver/evaluation/trial/default.mspx

I want to claify that the solution needs to do both monitoring to run reports of where users are going and authenticate users. Does anyone know if MS ISA can do both of theres?

So, you have specific users that you don't want to be able to access the internet? If so, no ISA server won't do that. However, you can use a group policy to block internet access for specific users.

squid is the best but keep in mind it requires times and skills to install, manage and configure it with other components. I used it in many complex environments with success but again you need  the skill in Linux and squid (open source packages)...
Just do it.....

Your best bet for an authentication via PPPoE is to run "Free Radius" or some sort of a radius manager, and in order to monitor and or prevent certain sites, you need to setup squid as a forward proxy server. go to www.freeradius.org and www.squid-cache.org for more information on both softwares. They are both freeware and open source. Yes they require linux, but what you can do is have a small computer even if its a old pentium 4 dedicated to this service.

Good luck
