going to a Cisco on each side (3745 on each end). When the system is
moved from being close to the cisco it can not ping even when signed
on to the Cisco router. Same mau works fine, bridge in between does

on the RISC side correctly (there is no gated or routed protocols running
to conflict with the Cisco routing) and it works when next to the
Cisco (on the same mau). The environment "appears" to be all token

A check of the configuration of the bridges shows that IP traffic is not
being passed.  Changing the configuration of the bridges corrected the
