    Yes, but it really it depends on what you mean by "filter by user name"

    what i mean by "filter by user" is that i want to create a more compressive and detailed way of filtering the internet by filtering not by the computer but by the user whom is using the computer

    That requires the Directory Connector, and the Policy Manager, and Active Directory.

    You use the Policy Manager to create a new rack for each filtration set you wish to maintain. Then create policies to route usernames or groups into the rack they need to be in.

    Untangle keeps tabs on users via IP address, so this approach won't work for multi-user systems like Terminal server. The IP to Username table is populated either via a group policy script, or the captive portal.

    As far as I'm aware you can use the local directory with the Captive portal, but you still need the directory connector to build that user table.
