NS2 installation in  Ubuntu 14.04

This post also posts a video that shows the installation instructions.
1. There is no audio in this video, please bear with me but these texts will make you understand how the installation is done in linux.
2. Copy the source file into the home folder
/home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz3. give this command to untar or unzip the software
    tar zxvf ns-allinone-2.35.tar.gz
    cd ns-allinone-2.35/
    ./install
This command will take some time to get ns2 installed....
Before step 1, give these commands (These commands will install the developmental libraries like C, C++, Tcl, Tk, etc)
    sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev

You may get an error in the ~ns-2.35/linkstate/ls.h file about a small correction in the C++ constructor
change a function erase to this->erase and then try ./install
This is the only error you can experience when installing ns2.35 under any of the OS (Fedora, Ubuntu or Linux Mint)

All your developmental libraries are available in the ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/ folder only (There may be other folders that you do not need at all, all your recompilation, examples, protocols, agents, packets, etc will be under the folder ~ns-2.35/)
Once the installation is over, you need to set the path to make ns and nam works from any terminal.....
To set the path, here are the files
in ubuntu - /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc
in Linux Mint - /home/pradeepkumar/.profile
in Fedora - /home/pradeepkumar/.bash_profile

So i need to set the path in the file .bashrc (Which will be available in the home folder of my machine)
Now installation is over.... now to set the path

Once the path is set, you need to check whether ns and nam are working. type ns and nam and see whether they are giving any results.
they are not working, as the PATH what we set is not yet sourced
one method is logout and login back or else
try  giving this command

source /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc (you should not get any errors, if you get then there may be something wrong in the path setting)
!!!!!!!!!!!!!Installation success!!!!!!

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…
