I suppose you mean the packet iptables as a firewall. I don't use it 
myself, so can't be off much help. But as far as I know, if you have your 
network through a switch, one off you computers will have to be the 
nameserver and all your outside traffic will have to go, or can be 
configured to go through this nameserver. Then I expect configuring the 
firewall on this server will be sufficient.
