Cisco's Content Engine can also do the functions that Scott
mentioned, plus gives you the benefit of web caching. It's
very feature-rich, and the command line looks a lot like IOS.
You can configure it to FTP your whitelist of URLs, and set
up user-specific or global time restrictions, which address
a couple of your specs. For the latter, I think you need
the Smart Filter module, which is not part of the basic
Content Engine distribution.
