Re: [uCsimm] net traffic filtering

Most of the filtering is done by the ethernet controller (if it is not running
in promiscuous mode), since only packets with matching ip destination
will be received and afterward processed by the up. If you want to do some
routing, I would suggest to use a 68vz328 which can
run with up to 33MHz.
