<p>Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) local area networks (LAN's) are used either ashigh-speed links between computers and peripherals, or as backbones for lower-speedLAN's, such as Ethernet and Token Ring. The availability of such a high-speed channel will lead to the implementation of high-performance distributed environments spread over a wider area than that allowed by commonly used LAN's. The performance of suchdistributed environments will strongly depend on that of the interconnecting devices. Inthis paper, two different algorithms for packet filtering are discussed, referring to bridgesinterconnecting Ethernet LAN's to FDDI backbones. Algorithm performance is comparedwith respect to 1) the traffic increase produced on a local Ethernet, and 2) the maximumallowed traffic on remote Ethernets.</p>
