  2. You cannot directly use the PIX 515E to block web sites.
    - you can use it to block IP addresses, which would work until the
    site changed IP addresses
    - you could add on a Websense or equivilent server which has various
    content and site controls, but is moderately expensive.
    Sorry, I do not understand what you are asking in that phrase. The
    PIX 515E cannot determine which program any of the computers is
    running: it would need to have strong connections into the internals
    of the operating system of each protected computer (and printer)
    in order to do that.
    There are a number of bandwidth controls available in Cisco products.
    If you are running PIX 7.x on the 515E, then you are able to
    configure bandwidth controls on it; however, that feature was
    not available in PIX 5 or PIX 6.
