is it possible for a server to detect a workstations which are doing direct downloads? How will i know if someone has downloaded a file which is not safe. i had put a filter for specific file, but this people just change the file name when saving (save target as)..
We are on a DSL connection.

This is a tricky subject as it mainly depends on the technical skill and/or determination of your users. You obviously have some control over the internet gateway as you have tried to apply some filters though without complete success.
The best approach may be to have acceptable use policies in place stipulating what users are or are not allowed to do. This is because it can be easier to monitor usage than to control it.
