I am working on creating a client/server application that allows only for unidirectional networking among three (3) clients (nodes). I understand the concept of one server, multiple clients, but I don't understand how to get 3 clients to "speak" to each other in a unidirectional point-to-point method. Each client/node must be able to pass messages as well as line bit rate unidirectionally, from one client/node to another.

Does anyone have information on how to implement this unidirectional point-to-point network program using Java? Thanks!

IBM's Token Ring is that kind of network topology (token passing, in one direction around the ring, and only the token holder can send a message). It was a nice idea, but turned out to be rather brittle and difficult to administer in practice (I helped beta test it, in the early 1980's).
