 Sybase-Novell-Token Ring?

I'm looking for feedback from anyone who has used (or has thoughts about)
a DOS front end, Sybase back end, Novell, going across token
ring vs ethernet.

Thanks in advance.

We are currently using a token-ring setup (primarily because EDS
is the prime contractor and they are token-ring bigots). We
have token ring boards in the Sun servers, and the rings are gatewayed
via novell servers. All pc's are running powerbuilder 2.0a under
windows 3.1 (we just migrated from PB 1.0b) and everything seems
to work just fine.

Re: Sybase-Novell-Token Ring?

Our company is currently implementing several client/server applications
for a customer.  The environment is 45 token rings, each with 10-20
DOS/Windows 3.1 workstations coupled to Novell Servers that go to an
Ethernet backbone with RS-6000 computers running Sybase.

We are developing PowerBuilder applications for humans to use to get to
the Sybase databases.  We have also developed socket to socket interfaces
(Novell to IBM's variant of UNIX running on the RS-6000) to do some
specialized tasks such as decoded touch-tone entry and scanned images
converted to ASCII from dedicated DOS boxes to Sybase stored procedures.

No particular problems have been encountered beyond the usual network and
application tuning that needs to take place.
