What Version: ns-3.29
My Ubunut OS is: Ubuntu 18.04

This file we are going to use for our simulation:
/home/networks/ns-allinone-3.29/ns-3.29/examples/routing/manet-routing-compare.cc

Once you under stand the code, now lets run this example

Step 1: Copy the above file in to ~ns-3.29/scratch/ folder

Step 2: Understand this code.
Step 3: Run this code
Open the terminal, Go to ns-3.29 and run the following command

$] ./waf --run scratch/manet-routing-compare

enable the following header file

#include "ns3/flo…

Installing Network Simulator 2 (NS-2.35) in Fedora 19

Fedora 19 was launched last fortnight and it released with so many new features http://pradeepkumar.org/2013/07/fedora-19-features.html
To install Network Simulator 2 (ns-2.35), here are the steps to do it. For other OS, here is the installation instructions.
Here comes the instructions for NS-2.35 in Fedora 19.

Installation Instructions

OS Used: Fedora 19 – 64 bit DVD Version http://www.fedoraproject.org
NS2: ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz from http://www.isi.edu/nsnam/ns/
Step 1: Copy the ns2 source file in to the home/ directory (always use the home directory and use ordinary user login)
Step 2: unzip or untar the contents from the source file using the commands one by one
cd /home/pradeepkumar
tar zxvf ns-allione-2.35.tar.gz
cd ns-allinone-2.35
Step 3: The default installation of fedora 19 does not handle the developmental software and has to be installed separately.  Here is the command to do that. (You must switch on your internet connection to download the software). Also see the screenshot
su    (You should be the super user to install the new software, provide the super user password when prompted)
yum install libX11-devel tcl tk gcc-c++ libXt-devel

Step 4: Once the installation of the softwares are over, go back to step 2 and give the following command
./install (see a dot in front of the / )
Step 5: The installation will run for more than 5 minutes (see the snapshot below) and it will show the path settings. You need to set tow paths (PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH) for successful running of ns,nam and xgraph

 Step 6: Set the paths in the file (/home/pradeepkumar/.bash_profile) as shown below
export PATH=$PATH:list/of/paths/separated/by/a/colon:/another/path/here
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/list/of/path/supplied/by/ns2/software:/another/path/here
Step 7: execute the .bash_profile using the command
source /home/pradeepkumar/.bash_profile
Step 8: check ns or nam by typing either ns or nam in the terminal

          ns
          % indicates ns interpreter is running
          nam

an animation window will pop out. You may get an error in ~ns-2.35/linkstate/ls.h file which can corrected by changing the erase{ to         this->erase{ in the 137th line.

ns3 installation in Ubuntu 16.04

This post serves the installation instructions of ns3 in ubuntu 16.04 version. Some of my students are working in ns3, this post will benefit them in installing ns3.

OS Used: Ubuntu 16.04.4
ns3 version: ns3 version 3.27

The same procedure will be applied for OS like Debian, Linux Mint.

Fresh installation of Ubuntu 16.04 Let you try the fresh installation of ubuntu in your hard disk along with windows.
Installation of ns3 dependencies ns3 needs so many dependencies, developmental libraries, drivers, etc. so install all those
$] sudo apt update  $] sudo apt upgrade
$] sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev python-pygoocanvas python-pygraphviz cvs mercurial bzr git cmake p7zip-full python-matplotlib python-tk python-dev python-kiwi python-gnome2 python-gnome2-desktop-dev python-rsvg qt4-dev-tools qt4-qmake qt4-qmake qt4-default gnuplot-x11 wireshark
The above command make take some time to download, compile and install it, Be Patient.

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/tora.cc~ns-2.35/tora/tora.h~ns-2.35/imep/imep.cc 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: tora.cc Open the tora.cc and include the follow…
