Maybe you could use a "Black Box" that also happens to provide Firewall
services as well as NAT.
One was reviewed in News/400 recently:
http://www.news400.com/features/issues/jul98/firewall98/firewall98.htm 

It WAS called Interpol 1.6 but is now called SonicWALL Plus DMZ.
(I guess the Interpol fuzz objected to the use of their name !).


You can also check the manufacturers web site:
http://www.sonicsys.com/

Product specific page at:
http://www.sonicsys.com/Firewall/index.html

No I haven't used the product myself, and I don't:
a) Own the company
b) Own shares in the company
c) Hold patents on the Product
d) Sell the product
e) Collect a referral fee for recommending the product
f) Install the product for a fee
g) Have a pet Bee called Eric

:-)
