My firewall box has that facility includded. It runs on an old PC, mine is an 
AMD 333mHz cpu with 128Mb RAM and a 1Gb hard drive and three nics. Once its 
installed and set up you don't even need a monitor on it as it can be 
administered from a web browser. I just set up a free account with 
set up the option in my firewall. Have a look at, for the 

Guy Fawkes, the only man to enter the house's of Parliament
with honest intentions, (he was going to blow them up!)
