We have a token ring network.  We have people on Ring2 of our network being arbitrarily disconnected by Netware and reconnecting to a different network segment.  The common pieces of equipment between the two rings is a netware 3.12 server and an IBM LAN Bridge.  We do not have source routing
turned on on either the server or the clients.  How is it possible to connect to a different LAN segment than the one you are plugged in to.

If you do not have preffered server set in NET.CFG then the first
server that the workstation get a reply to get nearest server it will connect to.  Do your users have accounts on both?

It is not connecting to two servers, it is connecting to two different LAN segments.  Same server.

Are the two segments connected at any place other than the server?  As long as the packets can get to the server it will connect, and the NIC that the packet gets to the server through is the segment the server will maintain the connection through.
It is dynamic so if you unplug the cable from one ring and plug it into the other the segment will change for the workstation.
