Advice sought for Linux setup as edge server

Alexandre Takacs
Last Modified: 2019-12-19
I'd have a *nix box sitting on the open internet with an L2TP tunnel to our LAN (PFSense router). Everything works fine as is but I'd like to be able to use the multiple public IPs I have available on the *nix machine to route / NAT traffic into our LAN (in effect having multiple public IPs to play with, both inbound (mainly)/outbound.
I feel relatively comfortable with our router but I am seeking advice about the "edge" machine, with the understanding that it has to be some Linux distro. What tools would you use to configure such a setup ?

Any suggestion / pointer welcome
