I thank all of you for the response. I have read the various
recommendations and have printed them out for reference.
Meanwhile -- because my need is immediate -- I chose to go with the
IPCop system, which is a branch of SmoothWall GPL, but now appears to
have advanced beyond SmoothWall. IPCop version 2 is very easy to
install and get running, using the default rules.
So now that I have running a replacement for the failed D-Link
DIR-615, I have the leisure to study and consider other approaches.
