137Re: [bacnet-mstpwg] Should a node be allowed to do more than one token retry?
- Jul 23, 2012Hi MS/TP working group!
Since we are discussing Token retries...
I received some comments a week ago from an engineer (Bill) at Siemens
(via Bernhard) on the Zero Config MS/TP proposal that is sitting in
SSPC. He had some of the usual critique that we have already
discussed in our working group, but he also had a small suggestion.
He suggested having the ZeroConfiguration nodes only respond to the
Token on the Token Retry, allowing any legitimate fixed MAC nodes
access to the first Token. My thoughts were that this practice would
make the MS/TP network sluggish and prone to dropped Tokens for
ZeroConfiguration nodes, but it would provide better protection for
fixed MAC nodes (it could even offer the full range of Master Node MAC
addresses for ZeroConfiguration nodes).
