Try the basic windows OS built in Routing and Remote Access Server. You can
setup NAT, port filtering/redirection and VPN.

Good luck!

Excerpt from page:

The Routing and Remote Access Server Setup Wizard provides the following
configuration options: 

-Internet connection server 
-Remote access server 
-Virtual private network (VPN) server 
-Network router 
-Manually configured router

Hello list.
I'm in the process of securing Windows xp prof network, consisting of 5
computers.
We use "workgroup" configuration.
Also the computers are conected to internet through windows 2000 gateway
computer with 2 network cards, where one card connects to ADSL router. NAT
software is in place on the gateway.
I'd much appreciate if somebody could point me to the internet recourses, or
give advise on how to make the most of windows own security features,
policies etc. Also what software firewall could we use on the gateway, since
after trying norton and mcaffe firewals, we couldn't access the intrenet.

Thanks,
Anna
