my favorite solution for this kind of thing is a dos program called
iproute, a $50 shareware program. it'll do filtering (ala access lists),
syslog, and nat. it can run on a 286 and fits on a floppy. just stick two
ethernet cards in an old used computer and edit the config file. it's
actually pretty cool.
i've never run gated, so can't compare it to that.
you can search on shareware.com for it, but make sure you look under
dos, not windows.
