    Web traffic? linux box + squid in "interception proxy" mode
    Internet traffic: as above + iptables rules etc. - but would produce a LOT of logfiles, which would be tricky to manage/read

    Sort of thing we do - but we wouldn't qualify for "cheapest" necessarily, though it depends how you value your time. We'd certainly come close to "easiest" though.

    Glad someone is getting some use out of it. Did the script turn up any 'interesting' sites?

    Any chance of some back ground on the script, such as what it can do and where it is installed, such as per client or centrally managed from a server etc.
