i want a software to control with internet usage for my employ

Hello, i'm searching for a best way to control with the internet usage for my employ

anyone have a free software or a simple way can control with: blocking internet category, and time control usage: time control want to be as a total like 2h per day any time.

we have a server2003 and 20Computers, we can't use ISA server on this network because the DSL router is far a way from the server and it's linked throw 24port switch with all computer.

1 Solution
You could install a proxy server, or use some kind of free content filtering software lilke this:

I would setup a PC that you download Untangle to and install it
The software is free and I have used it for many of my clients.
I would say before you do this, please, have some type of policy and procedure in place before you implement it.
Case in point, though I won't mention the state, one of my former clients did not have a policy or procedure in place that the internet at his business was only for business use.  One day he found one of his employees looking at same-sex porno.  The owner then implemented a firewall to ban this stuff.  The person looking got enraged and took the employer to court suing that since there was no procedure in place that the owner was implementing hate against his homosexuality.  The owner lost the case and the employee won.
You must always have a procedure in place and ALL employees sign off on it before something is implemented.

hello, sorry for late i was out of the country.

thomasdietrich: i want both of blocking internet category, and time control. not just a content control. thanks

K_Wilke: i tried this untangle software and doesn't work on windows server 2003. doesn't help sorry.

waiting for other solutions....
Untangle goes onto a PC by itself.  The PC sits in between the DSL modem and the network.  You download the software and create a CD from it.  Boot the CD onto a PC and it formats the hard drive and installs the software on to it.  You will need two Intel network cards and usually have it in bridge mode.
I have had nothing but raving comments from my clients who use this.

I do Squid(Free)! I'd recommend running Squid with Dansguardian ....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)...
