http://www.netboz.net/ is a self-contained bootable cd that provides
firewall, nat, dns, dhcp and vpn(in beta currently). Just need a floppy
to write configs to and you're off&running. yup, its fbsd based.
I've only played with it a little, but it was solid enough. I think it
is just missing IDS&AVS from your wishlist above. Online demo available
