I'm looking for an inexpensive Firewall to protect several IP KVM's & PDU's that are on configured on a separate WAN and I need some suggestions. One of the big things is that is must be rack mountable.

Not sure what inexpensive is but you can look into Sonicwall devices.  They are great and easy to administer.  You could also go with a very cheap Linksys Ethernet router and use NAT to protect your devices and put the device on a rack mounted shelf in the rack.  Anything like the firewall appliances made by Watchguard, Symanec, etc. won't be lower cost.  Sonicwall makes a very low cost firewall model TZ180 that's not a bad device and even has VPN capabilities.

Hope this helps!
