Most firewalls you will be able to do this. I have an untangle box sitting between my clients network and the outside world where you can do all of this for free. It takes a little bit of setting up, but works amazing and can be run on very little old hardware.

If your firewall does not do this, check the manufacturer, then Untangle would work awesome for what you want to accomplish and 99% of the functionality is free.

You will need an application like Browse Control.

Dont look at the appliance I sent with the above link, look the the free download CD you can install on an old desktop. It has to have 2 NICs in it to function correctly. Best solution I have found so far for free and do not have to load any software on the server. Its a standalone box.
