Router/Firewall Setup

I am looking at setting up a seperate router/firewall box in a PII 450.

This will be connected to the local network, and to two internet connections.

I want to be able to seperate internet traffic so all one kind of traffic goes through one connection, and all other traffic goes through another.

I figure I will need two network cards, one for the internal network and another one with both ADSL modems connected.

I have been looking at ClarkConnect to handle this, but am not 100% sure that it will cater for traffic routing by port (assuming port-based routing is the best in this case).

Does anyone have an idea about this? If not CC, is there another distro or program that I might be better off using?

In case any one else stumbles across this and is looking for an answer, I have found lokiwall, which appears to be the thing I am looking for.

As you were.
