Please explain _why_ you don't want to use a proxy, and _why_ you
won't/can't use packet filtering? HTTP __is in fact layer 7__, so why
the need to write your own proxy? I mean, writing a layer 7 URL
filtering is in a fact a proxy like Squid, so why do you want/need to
craft you own proxy? Perhaps, you don't want your users to know that
you are filtering them. or you don't want to set-up the proxy in each
browser? That is called an "intercepting proxy" and filters all
traffic on the gateway, and you would still use a combination of pf
and squid. If you don't want to use squidguard, or dansguardian
because of the messages they sent to the user, you can customize that
to say or redirect to another form of not authorized page. Please
explain the _why_ in your original post and perhaps it would be easier
to help you
