Some questions about TMG 2010:

1.  Does it do in-depth reporting on IP addresses from the internal network, so that I can see internet bandwidth usage, and all url's visited.  For example, I would like to know if a user was accessing skype and did 100MB using that application, or went to youtube and did 200MB from that site.

2.  Can TMG 2010 block url categories like social networking, or must I define all urls that are blocked?

3.  Can TMG 2010 be setup in a bridged network mode?

4.  Does TMG 2010 do web caching?  If bridged network mode is an option, will web caching working in bridged mode?
