the simplest and most effective method would be a commercial ips ( intrusion prevention system )
such as ironmail.
they will scan for viruses, spam, phishing, block specific sites or domains, yet allow exactly what traffic you want.
ironmail itself will also allow control on a per system basis for access to internet. ( probably most will )

a good ips will be scalable, with good reports comments on user lists from the provider. ( usenet lists, irc channels, and email lists )

for internal ( your own server ) based firewalling, you would have to detail which firewall method you want to use, or way to many options to detail. most will not support blocking specific hosts with dhcp, as they block on ip, not hw address

If I understand your question correctly, you are not attempting to block intrusions, but rather control the access your users have to the internet. If this is correct, you may wish to look at using an proxy server such as Squid provides the ability to create safe, secure, policy-based Internet access. You could implement this as a socks proxy which could handle all outbound traffic and have full control of what you user accessed.

Sir you can use proxy server like squid in squid.conf you can block some port.and you can also use ipcains or iptables to restrict your spesific user to access internet.give command for smtp or pop3 accept like ipchains -A (uripchain) -p tcp -d (ur network) smtp/pop3 -j accept.Like this configure ur firewall.

squid + dansguardian + iptables
squid transaparent proxy:

check /etc/squid.conf
and change this

httpd_accel_host virtual
httpd_accel_port 80
httpd_accel_with_proxy on
httpd_accel_uses_host_header on

dansguardian(web content proxy):
download, install, configure the file
bannedsitelist, exceptioniplist(ip no filtered)

iptables: force the user to use the proxy

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth1 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080

dansguardian run on port 8080
