Installation of OMNeT++ in Linux Mint 16

This blog post shows the installation of OMNeT++ in Linux Mint 16 (Ubuntu 13.10) . Linux Mint 16 is just launched this week and Linux Mint is derived from the Base source of Ubuntu 13.10

Let us see, how to install OMNeT++ in Linux Mint.

My Settings

  • Used Linux Mint 16 (Petra) 32 Bit OS (As OMNeT++ libraries are mainly 32 bit libraries)
  • OMNeT++ Version 4.3
  • Unlike Windows 7 or 8, you need to download some extra softwares in Linux
You can also see the following link if you want to try OMNeT++ in Windows 7 or Windows 8.  http://www.nsnam.com/2013/12/installation-of-omnet-in-windows-8-and.html

1. Download the OMNeT++ package from this  URL http://www.omnetpp.org/omnetpp/doc_download/2266-omnet-431-source--ide-tgz
See the Screenshot below and Select the first link 
Omnet++
OMNeT++

2. Unzip it using the following command  
tar zxvf omnetpp-4.3.1.tgz
3. Install the following libraries 
sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev tcl tk tcl-dev tk-dev bison byacc swig zlib1g-dev flex 
4. The above download will take 40MB of software and will take time depending on your internet speed.
5. Go to the folder of OMNeT++ using the command
Prompt#] cd omnetpp-4.3.1
Prompt#] ./configure (This command will check for the necessary software included or not). Once succeeded, you need to set some PATH and TCL_LIBRARY Information.  See the Screenshot of my /home/pradeepkumar/.profile (if you are using Ubuntu, you may be having the .bashrc file instead of .profile). Here is the PATH information
export TCL_LIBRARY=/usr/share/tcltk/tcl8.5
export PATH=$PATH:/home/pradeepkumar/omnetpp-4.3.1/bin

Prompt#]  make

This make will take atleast 5 minutes to compile all the modules. 
LinuxMint
.profile file 

Once done,  open the software using the command omnetpp
Thats it!!!.

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…
