Subject was (RE: proxy server on modem)

Stuart,

  I don't know how 'simple' the guides are, but for Linux I would
refer to the Firewall-HOWTO as a place to start.  The iptables/ipchains
documentation is also valuable.  You can find this information under
/usr/share/doc/howto and /usr/share/doc/packages on many Linux
installations.
