You will need an IBM token ring card (ISA) which fits into the 5363 and
configs as line 9.  Go to www.synapse.com and find a S36 document in the
tech support area that details how to set this up on the SSP.  Newer
versions of SSP use the SET cmd to set 4 or 16mb.  You can then connect this
to your TR lan or to MS SNA Server to bridge the tr to your ethernet lan.
The Synapse WinAPPC is made specifically for either of these two environments.
