I'm trying to setup NT Terminal Server with 2 NIC's. One segment will have a regular ethernet network, and the other segment will have a token ring network. I get errors with the Token Ring card saying that it needs a unique LAA number. What is that? It also says that it could not open onto the ring because it may not be running at the correct mode. I am so unfamiliar with Token Ring and it's specs. Please advise.

Please describe how you have the Token Ring nic hooked to the token ring network.

(Ie, medium (rj-45, coax?), setup (MAU?))

BTW,

Token ring addresses are either locally administered or universally administered. Locally administered addresses (LAAs) are assigned by a local manager and universally administered addresses are assigned by a standards organization. Locally administered addresses are designated by bit one set to 1 in byte zero of the destination address field.

And is that rj-45 cable connected to a MAU?

What kind of TR card is it?

You should be able to assign a unique LAA in the network control panel.

Check this control panel to make sure that you have the correct settings.

Also, make sure you have a routing table setup and IP Forwarding is on so that packets can be passed between segments.

Do you have a TR network up and running ?
What speed is it - 4 or 16 ?

Here's a reasonable FAQ :
