Is there any special reason why a headless mini PC box is unsuitable?  
IPCop is FOSS and /very/ good and requires /very/ low end hardware and 
resources.  Very configurable via an easy to use WEB interface and it'll 
do all that you've mentioned.  If you really want to get fancy with it 
there's an excellent book available from Amazon (and other places too I 
s'pose).  Here's a review

There are 10 types of people ...

They say a marble sized object collided with some gasses, and had
a massive explosion and the universe was born.
