Any idea who I should talk to at Smoothwall if what you say above is the 
case? When I called them to discuss requirements I was told that even 
the commercial offering (I don't mind paying) only supports a single red 
interface that previously they have configured aliases for routing to 
multiple IPs to servers on the Orange where no firewall or NAT takes 
place. Their suggestion, which surprised me, was to use two Smoothwall 
Express boxes and apply static routes to each workstation.
