  • Installation of these softwares, their customisation and also 
  • Source Codes along with video lectures of these software are listed in this website,
Each post is individually created by T S Pradeep Kumar and hours of time is being spent on creating these codes. More than 25% of the research in computing science involves the networking research and that too uses simulators. 
So do not copy our codes and republish elsewhere, all the contents were either original or reproduced from elsewhere (by giving credits to the authors). 

From March 2014, giving the complete source code to the readers is restricted, since some mediators uses our code and sell it to the others. But these codes can be created by the readers themselves by going through my video tutorials or the text materials given in my blog. 

Still if you need it, you can purchase it at a cost of  US$20 by giving a request to acadprj at gmail dot com.

So read, exploit and cherish from my blog !!!!!
