So what is the alternative....? Here is the answer: Katoolin

Its the name of the package system for installing the entire kali linux tools (Penetration Testing) in Ubuntu or Debian based system.

Here I am trying to install inside my Linux Mint

OS Used: Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya
Prequisites: Python 2.7
Always perform these steps after the installation of ubuntu or Linux Mint

$] sudo apt update
$] sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev
$] sudo apt install git
$] git clone
$] sudo cp katoolin/ /usr/bin/katoolin
$] sudo katoolin

This will give various options as shown below
 In the above pic. Select 2 to View categories and you will get the screen as shown in the next image.
Select "0" to install all the applications.

This will install 1.3G to download and 3.5 GB space will be…

Wireless Node Configuration in Network Simulator 2 (NS2)

The node configuration in ns2 is a special task in which the number of nodes can be configured for a set of parameters. The following table tells about the node  configuration parameters as defined in the ns-lib.tclThe readers are requested to refer the ns-lib.tcl file for more information.OptionAvailable ValuesRemarksaddressTypeflat, hierarchichalMPLSON,OFFMulti protocol Label SwitchingwiredRoutingON, OFFllTypeLL, LL/SatLink LayermacTypeMac/802_11, Mac/Csma/Ca, Mac/Sat, Mac/Sat/UnslottedAloha, Mac/TdmaMedium Access ControlifqTypeQueue/DropTail, Queue/DropTail/PriQueueInterface Queue typephyTypePhy/wirelessPhy, Phy/SatPhysical Layer TypeadhocRoutingDIFFUSION/RATE, DIFFUSION/PROB, DSDV, DSR, FLOODING, OMNIMCAST,AODV,TORA,PUMAadhoc routing protocolpropTypePropagation/TwoRayGround, Propagation/ShadowingPropagation TypeantTypeAntenna/OmniAntenna, Antenna typeChannelChannel/WirelessChannel, Channel/SatChannel to be usedmobileIPON,OFFto set the IP for Mobile or notenergyModelEnergyModelener…

Tracegraph - a graphing software to plot the trace files from NS2

Tracegraph is a third party software helps in plotting the graphs for NS2 and other networking simulation softwares. But the sad point is the software is not maintained by anyone and the happiest point is the software works fine still and it is free. You may download the tracegraph software from these locations.For windows: Linux : are actually two files one with the matlab runtime library file and other is the original software tracegraph.Tracegraph when opened, it opens 3 windows, one window to select the trace file (.tr) that was created by NS2 (depending on the size of the trace file, the processing time also varies)Second window is the main window in which you can see the graphs for various performance characteristics like throughput, End to End Delay, jitter, etc in 2D and 3D facillity. Even it can plot the histo…

proc directory in Linux

If by any chance, if you want to know about the processor, memory, IO Memory, Ports, etc about the system/CPU. Then you can look into the folder /proc in Linux. There are various files that tells you the information about the CPU.
Some Examples
if you want to know about the CPU Information, go to the terminal and try this
# cat /proc/cpuinfo
For memory information
# cat /proc/meminfo
For IO Memory information
# cat /proc/iomem
if you want to see how long the system is up can be seen using the file uptime
# cat /proc/uptime
(The above will list two numbers, one being the uptime of the system and other being uptime for all the cores of the processor)
and other information like scheduling, filesystems, etc can be seen from the /proc folder
