Jane,
If you have a computer with 2 network cards in it or an empty PCI slot,
you could run IP chains in Linux. Put that box between your gateway and
the rest of the network. If you are a Mac only environment, I would
install YellowDog Linux and run IP chains on that box. You could also
have it do NAT. If you are a mixed environment, I would run it on RedHat
Linux. Ip Chains is part of the RedHat install. RedHat has excellent
tech support so, if you are a linux newbie, they can be most helpful.
The person to get intouch with at RedHat specifically for K-12 use is

Hello,
One of the schools in our district has been slammed with attacks on
his
server.  They have put up a software firewall, but the attacker has
gotten around that.
My principal has given me the go-ahead to look into hardware or
software
firewall solutions for our Macintosh G3 server running Mac OS 9.
Any suggestions? Has anyone had any good experience? Bad experience?
