    Just curious - when a token is passed to a workstation what stops that
    worksation hogging the network. i.e. if a workstation wants to send a few
    Gig of data do the other workstations have to wait or is there a time limit
    a ws can hold the token. The books I have are not clear on the matter.

    Thanks

    Token Ring has time-related and attribute-related mechanisms to force a
    workstation to release the token if it seems to be hogging it and to not try
    and use it too often.
