Are you talking along the lines of restricting access to the net?

I want to go to google, so I type into my browser www.google.com.au, at
which point the proxy prompts me for a username/password combo, and after
successful authenication I can then go out into the big bad internet, or are
you wanting to run a proxy anonymiser for only a few people (I want to view
certain content, but knowing the normal ones are blocked, I go to your
domain, log in, and then surf the net)

It sounds more like you want the webserver to do the proxying for you.
Have you looked at apache with mod_proxy?
