However, if you haven't setup these tools before,  then this is likely
going to be
several days or more to learn all these tools,  and several days more to
up with a production tested configuration.   A good learning experience
perhaps,  but then
only you will be able to support it. 

If you not interested in the academic exercise,   then the free Linux
"Endian Firewall - community )  might be useful.    And just about any
admin could probably support it.

much more )
