As a Cisco employee, may I recommend you the plain Cisco router
with 11.2 release and the NAT feature (this usually means buying
a more expensive image).
The router NAT can handle: FTP and the infamous PORT command, ICMP, ...
It can also handle dynamically 'dual NAT' provided you rely on DNS.
Dual NAT is needed when you are using illegal IP addresses in your
internal network and want to be able to reach the host with your/its
IP addresses on the Internet.
