Token Ring (IEEE 802.5)
Token Ring is a local area networking technology originally devised by IBM. It has largely been replaced by Ethernet, but some Token Ring installations still exist.
It is specified by various IEEE 802.5 specifications.
Information how to capture on a Token Ring network can be found at the CaptureSetup/TokenRing page.
XXX - add a brief description of Token Ring history
- Token Ring is the lowest software layer, so it only depends on hardware.
XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).
The Token Ring dissector is fully functional.
(XXX add links to preference settings affecting how Token Ring is dissected).
Example capture file
XXX - Add a simple example capture file. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.
A complete list of Token Ring display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference for Token Ring and display filter reference for Token Ring Media Access Control
