Content filtering on new server

Evening all,

We're about to have a new windows 2008 server delivered and some new accounting software but can anyone recommend a good (preferably stealth) way of blocking certain websites like the social networking ones, MSN messenger and by keyword.

Looking for something either freeware or cheap!

Thanks in advance
Andy

It's a router issue rather than server. Our Netgear router does similar.

Coincidentaly, my weekend will be taken up by installing a new server. Mac in our case though. :D

Thanks for the recommendation Dave, I picked up a second hand draytek 2800 with the URL blocking etc.

Just installed it today and it works a treat, no more;

Bebo
facebook
myspace
twitter
and more...

and no chat progs either!!!

Wish I had a webcam to catch the look on their faces when they get the "content blocked - contact your network administrator" error :rofl:
