Not that I'm aware of, but for a simple packet filter, I would trust:
a router such as a cisco 2514 with two ethernet ports. Why? That IP code
has been through the most God-awful pounding anyone has ever put IP code
through, and it works. Packet filters under cisco are about the most
trusted way to do packet filters, and as long as you put an access list on
telnet access to the cisco itself, you're fine.
