Control field values
The token-ring control fields include an unnmubered information frame, an exchange identification frame, and a test frame. Their values are described here.
|x`03'||Unnumbered Information (UI) frame. This is the normal, or unsequenced, way in which token-ring adapter data is transmitted through the network. TCP/IP sequences the data.|
|x`AF'||Exchange identification (XID) frame. This frame conveys the characteristics of the sending host.|
|x`E3'||Test frame. This frame supports testing of the transmission path, echoing back the data that is received.|
