Question Firewall / Content Filtering - Recommendations


What do you recommend for a Firewall/Content Filter solution for a Network at my Church.

I'm running a Microsoft 2k server with about 15 workstations running 2000 professional.

I am open to putting a linux firewall in front of the network but I also need content filtering websurfing.

Or if you have a solution that's not linux, thats ok, I just need to get something that works good.

Do a google for "DansGuardian." It's a very nifty app that works wth squid. When a user tries to visit for instance, a page that says "Free teen sex" they are presented a great big ERROR page. You set your own rules of course.

I've used it in a couple small companies, easily tuned to not be too facist, but still keep people from using your bandwidth for crap.
