The host version of the previously mentioned Phoenix Adaptive Firewall supports a ppp connection. Currently, I run the host version to protect my home network on my cable modem, and I have it running on my laptop as added protection while I'm on the road, protecting either my ppp or eth0 connection, depending on where I am. It is easy to install, setup and maintain through a local web browser interface. One point to mention, it does not yet support the Linux 2.4 kernel, although I've heard that is coming in the near future.
