You can find a whole bunch of freeware, shareware and commercial proxy servers here:

In conjunction with the NAT setup (which already can do a lot of things, like mapping inbound ports to private addresses and such), I believe that the only missing thing is mainly the caching facility.

foxhound, by design, a NAT shields the internal computers from access by other computers. The NAT server is accessed, and if the NAT server knows that the data packet which arrived was requested by a PC in the internal network, it will pass it on. If not, it will discard the packet, thus efficiently blocking access to listening ports on internal machines.

Of course, the NAT does not do content, port or application-based blocking and therefore does not offer the capabilities of a full-blow firewall. However, NAT does do a fair job as SOHO firewall as long as the NAT server is properly configured (that it, not vulnerable itself).
