This topic collection helps you plan, configure, manage, tune, and troubleshoot token-ring support for TCP/IP and Systems Network Architecture (SNA).
Users who have existing token-ring line descriptions can change them to take advantage of the 100 Mbps card. If you use the line description with TCP/IP, also assign it to a TCP/IP interface.
By using the code examples, you agree to the terms of the Code license and disclaimer information.

- Token-ring overview
Before you configure the system, you need to know what token-ring functions are supported by your system, what determines a successful connection between local area network (LAN) devices, what connects Systems Network Architecture (SNA) to token ring, and what determines your maximum frame size of token ring.
- Planning for token-ring support
To make the configuration of token-ring support easier, you need to make some decisions about how to configure your connections.
- Configuring token-ring support
After understanding and planning your token-ring support, you are ready to configure token ring on the system.
- Managing token-ring support
After setting up token-ring support, you can change the line descriptions to use token ring, assign the token-ring line description to a TCP/IP interface, enable an object to accept connections, and view the address of your LAN input/output adapter (IOA).
- Tuning token-ring performance
To improve the performance of your connections, you can adjust related token-ring parameters.
- Troubleshooting token ring
The system provides some tools that help you locate and resolve the problems with token ring.
