Ubuntu or Debian as a passthrough AV/Malware Scanning Gateway and Firewall?

I was wondering if it is at all possible to set up a Ubuntu or Debian system as a gateway that will perform all AV scanning and firewall duties realtime, for all machines connected to the network behind it.
If this is possible, I would love to hear some suggestions of how you would approach the issue.

Many thanks!

I also use SME Linux to provide server functions like this to my Windows systems. There is a contrib for SME to run Clam AntiVirus
