Thanks for all the help here everyone.  I have settled for the TIS
firewall Tool-kit.  It does everything I need and almost everything I want

Combined with the transparent-proxy feature of the Linux kernel I can get
it to intercept/redirect telnet connection attempts to the tn-gw proxy of
the TIS fwtk.  However I cannot get it to automatically connect to the
remote destination after successfully authenticating the local user.  The
problem is how to find out where they wanted to go, without them having to
type "c host" at the "tn-gw>" prompt. I can live with this 2 step
procedure though,
