I am not sure what you mean by "purse the access to our web and ftp servers by the proxy server"

I'm going to assume that "purse" is misspelled and you mean pause, or stop the access.  I can think
of two possible ways (without buying extra hardware or software).

1) From the FTP and Web Server
   - In your config files for the ftp and http server, you should be able to deny access from the Proxy IP.
This should work even if all three servers are on the same machine by denying access from

2) Alternatively blocking from the proxy to those sites may also be possible.

Both of these will only eliminate the proxy users from being able to access your FTP and Web sites.
... on second thought, these schemes would probably eliminate a majority of them since they wouldn't 
know how to remove the proxy configuration from their web browser and ftp client ;-)

My apologies if I have misinterpreted what you were trying to express.
