IMHO, I am not a fan of HTML interfaces. However, I use ipmasq on my
debian woody box to do ipmasq/NAT/firewalling. (One benefit of the
Linux solution is that you can install squid and set up a web
cache/proxy to decrease bandwidth usage.) Check the
/usr/share/doc/ipmasq/examples/stronger directory for the firewall
rules. The files are sufficiently commented and the manpages aren't
too hard to understand either.
