Block Out Traffic on IPCop

I have installed BOT on IPCop. Basically, I want to provide the following access levels on users connected:

1.) Mail users only - Only POP3, SMTP,IMAP is enabled. Internet access is denied
2.) Typical Users - SMTP,POP3,IMAP and proxy is enabled. Which means they have internet access with ports 25, 110, 143 opened.
3.) Super Users - All ports are opened. These accesses are given to system administrators and VIP

All accesses should be transparent.

Now, I am having trouble configuring Black OUt Traffic (BOT) to do this. For certain reasons, BOT doesn't allow opening all ports for Super Users. Restrictions 1 and 2 are working but not the third one. How can I set BOT to allow all ports to be opened for certain users?

If so, do IPCop have other addons which is simpler than BOT to control the traffic and identify different access levels?

Thanks in advance.

yeah its called the ORANGE network. to open up all of the ports put them on the DMZ NIC and go from there. they will have their own IP scheme and have basically no firewall between them and the internet.

If i understand the ORANGE network in IPCop.

No, I think you did not understand my inquiry. I wanted to control all the traffic/ports on my local network. To give restrictions to each groups. I don't want to put those groups all in orange zone. I just want them to have unique access rights.
