    I have not used this in many years, but ClarkConnect does all of that and then some. I think they are ClearOS now. Check it out: http://www.clarkconnect.com/legacy/index.php

    Port won't forward cisco 871

    The port re-direct will redirect requests for port 80 to a port that you specify. COX does indeed block port 80 on regular "home" accounts. This is for bandwidth reasons. If you decide to go with no-ip.com, you are doing so at your own risk. COX does monitor how much bandwidth you use and...

    How do you handle lab/public access machines?

    Try using Microsoft SteadyState. It's free. I just installed it on the computers in a computer lab I set up for a local church. I allows you to limit the capabilities of the users per user account. Check it out. It's not that bad for a Microsoft product...

    Upgrades on a budget.

    I agree 100% with what Morfius said. I have used freenas and I run an Endian Firewall. They are both great products and can run on just about anything. Endian does require a decent amount of RAM once you use content filtering and proxying. What you are wanting to do can definitely be done...

    Cheap server case?

    I just got 2 of these. I love them. Lots of room for HDDs and excellent airflow. Solid construction! Not bad for $65.
