Fishwall can also configure NAT/MASQUERADE for you.

Fishwall is easy to configure, using the built-in prompt interface, even if you have little or no knowledge of firewalling, iptables and Linux.

Where can i get it?

You can download Fishwall 1 from the Webfish Linux Sourceforge page which is located here.

Current Status

Fishwall-1 works fine but the configure interface is still a bit buggy in some more complex scenarios- in this case best write fishwall.conf by hand or use configure and then fix the conf. The whole of Fishwall could do with a re-write as OO-perl code really, this would make it easier to implement a decent configure.
