web filtering recommendations

Hi Guys

Can you recommend web filtering software, need it for about 20 machines, a hosted solution would be good but if needs be we can install software on the server, has to be easy to setup and administer!

Thanks

I personally prefer filtering outbound web traffic at the Firewall.  Is that an option with your firewall?

What do you need to filter? Specific sites or large groups like "adult content". I agree that the firewall is a good spot, you can also use opendns.

They only have a basic firewall so not a option i'm afraid, opendns doesnt seem to give enough control.
