I'm setting up a firewall for a small business's DSL line.  They have a /28
coming out of the DSL modem.  Since there is no place to put a router (and
they don't want NAT), I'd like to set up a bridge/firewall where a computer
acts as a ethernet bridge and also filters packets.  Can this be done with
NetBSD 1.6?

If so, could I also run a service or two on that machine, or would it have
no IP addresses?  An anonymous FTP server would be nice.
