I can put in a personal plug for Speakeasy DSL, which I use and will
(let you) do all of those things.  I don't know what their
availability is like, though, you'll have to check.  The only two
downsides (among many upsides) is that their aup doesn't permit port
scanning (not a big deal, but occasionally would be useful) and that
they wont do support via email.

As for a generalized resource, I couldn't tell you.
