We present analytical and numerical results for dispersion-managed solitons in a fiber link including guiding filters and compensating gain, both taken in the distributed approximation. Stationary propagation regimes with anomalous, zero, and normal path-average dispersion (PAD) are identified. New features, compared with those of the case without filters, are the absence of a critical strength for propagation at zero and normal PAD and, instead, the existence of a critical power for stationary propagation at any PAD.
