Is there a that a firewall product that can reside only on the server?

I have a single Windows 2000 server with five clients and I'm looking for a software package that combines firewall & anti-virus capabilities that can reside only on the server. Any suggestions?
I cannot recommend any specific firewall product. However, there are several free and low cost products available. I would, however, recommend that you also provide anti-virus protection for all clients even if you have it on the server. This serves two purposes. First, they may catch something the server misses, and second, they will prevent infections launched from within your network, something the firewall cannot filter.
