Installation of Network Simulator 2 (NS-2.35) in Linux Mint 14 (16bit)

The following video and the how to instructions will tell you how you can install ns-2.35 in Linux mint 14 (64 bit) edition.

  • Step 1: This video shows you the demonstration of ns2 in Linux Mint 14 (64Bit) OS
  • Step 2: issue this command in the terminal "sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev" (without Quotes)
  • Step 3: if you have Ubuntu issue this command first before u try step 2 : "sudo apt-get update"
  • Step 4: Once installation succeeded, start the process of installing ns2
  • Step 5: copy the ns-allinone-2.3x.tar.gz in the home folder, in my case it is /home/pradeep
  • Step 6: go to home folder and execute this command "tar zxvf ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz"
  • step 7: cd ns-allinone-2.35 and ./install (after these commands, wait for the successful installation), it may take 5 min to 15 minutes based on the
    speed of your computer.
  • Step 8: there may be errors shown, in case if errors, the errors should be corrected and reissue the command ./install
  • step 9: There is an error on ns-2.35/linkstate/ls.h file, so the error has to be corrected as pointed out in the video,
    In line number 137, change erase to this->erase
  • Step 10: Once installation is succeeded, you will get some path information
    Step 11: set the paths in the .profile file which is under the home directory (/home/pradeep/.profile)
  • as specified in the video, copy the PATH url and LD_LIBRARY_PATH URL and paste in the .profile file.
  • Step 12: Once the path information is set, run the command to test the path "source /home/pradeep/.profile) and see there should not be any errors
    Step 16: try ns and nam individually and see whether they are working
    when you type ns and type enter a % symbol indicates the installation is successful
    when you type nam and a network animation window pop up.

TORA Protocol in NS-2.35 (NS2)

This post tells you how to enable the TORA (Temporally ordered routing Algorithm) protocol in Network Simulator 2 (ns-2.35)

TORA is a protocol in wireless adhoc networks that works with timing parameters. NS-2.35 comes with the TORA protocol by default but it has to be tweaked manually to make it run.
This post will help you to do that.

You can watch this video for detailed instructions:

Step 1: Generate a Scenario for TORA protoco using NS2 Scenario Generator NSG Software.
We have created a tcl file using NSG2.1.jar

$] java -jar NSG2.1.jar

Three files have to be modified
~ns-2.35/tora/ There are various websites that tells you how to configure TORA by making changes to the above three files.  Change 1: tora.h In the tora.h file, go to the end of the File before the agent completes, include these two lines

#include <classifier/classifier-port.h>
protected: PortClassifier *dmux_;

Change 2: Open the and include the follow…
