Guillermo,


If I had to do URL filtering without paying anyone I would look at using Squid (www.squid-cache.org) on Linux and WCCP on the ASA.


I have used Squid in the past and I think it is a great open source project. Very powerful and useful. It's web caching software but with lots of access control features.


This link has information about WCCP on the ASA:


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/asa/asa80/configuration/guide/dhcp.html#wp1094445


The Squid home page is:


www.squid-cache.org


This document has an example of using Squid with a Cisco router (the ASA configuration would be different, but this should offer some help):


http://wiki.squid-cache.org/ConfigExamples/SquidAndWccp2


If you end up going this route please post here your experience and results.


Cheers,

BTW, forgot to mention: I've used Squid in the past but not in conjunction with an ASA/PIX or with WCCP. I just thought this could give you what you want and is worth exploring.
