This a home setup. First and formost, I want to restrict, limit and 
control what clients can send out and to where. Basically, I just want 
ALL out-bound traffic to pass through FC3 iptables then get routed to 
the FVS318.

So, the best (easiest) way to accomplish this is to make the FC3 the 
gateway router by adding another interface? Do the NAT rules get crazy 
for that? Are the routing tables complicated?
