This document contains instructions for installing the multiport ciscoBus Token Ring interface card
(CSC-C2CTR) and Token Ring applique (APP-LTR2) in your AGS+ chassis. This document also
provides instructions for upgrading the C2CTR microcode by replacing a single erasable
programmable read-only memory (EPROM) component on the CSC-C2CTR card. The
CSC-C2CTR provides two or four high-speed Token Ring interfaces for connection to IEEE 802.5
and IBM-compatible Token Ring media at speeds of 4 or 16 Mbps. The APP-LTR2 provides the
interface between the CSC-C2CTR and your Token Ring network. Both the card and applique must
be installed in an AGS+ with a CSC/3 or CSC/4 processor card and a ciscoBus II controller card
(CSC-CCTL2).
