Thanks to everyone for their recommendations.
I don't have any Un*x experience so I will have to
see how Wingate, Spagetti, MS Proxy, and another
one call WinProxy work out.

To answer Randy's question, the local telco does not
offer local ISDN service where we are located. They
do offer "virtual ISDN" which amounts to 2x the install and
2x the monthly charge. They set us up with a phone number
based out of the nearest "local ISDN" location and charge
per minute usage. The 56k line is unlimited usage and a
lower cost per month and per install. I have also read that
the latency it much lower on 56k than on ISDN. Perhaps
another list member could verify/dispute this?

The newest version of Wingate has a firewall built in to it.
Has anyone had any experience with it? Good, Bad?
