Installing ns-3.37 and ns-3.35 in Ubuntu | Ubuntu 22.04 | NS3

Multiple Versions of ns3 in Ubuntu 22.04 In this post, we are going to install two versions of ns3 namely ns-3.35 and ns-3.37  My OS is : Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Long Term Support) ns-3.35 uses waf and (./waf --run scratch/first)  ns-3.37 uses cmake  (./ns3 run scratch/first.cc) So we will install both the packages  Go through the video for complete instructions To start with  $ sudo apt update  $ sudo apt install build-essential autoconf automake libxmu-dev g++ python3 python3-dev pkg-config sqlite3 cmake python3-setuptools git qtbase5-dev qtchooser qt5-qmake qtbase5-dev-tools gir1.2-goocanvas-2.0 python3-gi python3-gi-cairo python3-pygraphviz gir1.2-gtk-3.0 ipython3 openmpi-bin openmpi-common openmpi-doc libopenmpi-dev autoconf cvs bzr unrar gsl-bin libgsl-dev libgslcblas0 wireshark tcpdump sqlite sqlite3 libsqlite3-dev  libxml2 libxml2-dev libc6-dev libc6-dev-i386 libclang-dev llvm-dev automake python3-pip libxml2 libxml2-dev libboost-all-dev  I have downloaded both the versions of ns3 fr

Ant Colony Algorithm (antnet) in NS-2.35

The source code of antnet is taken from this website. If anyone claims as the owner of this software, let me know so that I will give credits to him/her.

(NB: This topic does not have any relevance to me and I have just reproduced what was available in the above website). And of Course, corrected some bugs. 

Important: These codes will work well with fresh installation of ns-allinone-2.35. If you have already compiled any other simulation in ns-2.35, kindly take a back up before you proceed.

These are the files to be modified. Download the entire folder here
...ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-default.tcl 
...ns-2.35/common/packet.h    
rtable.txt (This file is created for my network with 2 nodes)
...ns-2.35/trace/cmu-trace.cc 
...ns-2.35/queue/drop-tail.h
...ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-lib.tcl      
...ns-2.35/queue/priqueue.cc  
simpleant.tcl (This is the tcl file can be copied anywhere)
...ns-2.35/trace/cmu-trace.h  
...ns-2.35/Makefile.in
...ns-2.35/tcl/lib/ns-packet.tcl   
...ns-2.35/queue/priqueue.h   
antnet_281_29.tar.gz (this will be original algorithm) 
...ns-2.35/queue/drop-tail.cc

Step 1: Download all the files

Step 2: Copy each file to the original location as given above (One main problem when you copy paste from the web is, some symbols like -, ", ->,_, are formatted automatically for web standards, but C programming or any programming language accepts only ASCII Codes. So whenever you copy paste codes in C programming, ensure that all symbols are of ASCII.  Else the compiler may throw as \364, etc stray program error.
(So all the codes that you download from my link are ASCII complaint codes, Yes I have modified, You can compile the codes with minimal effort)

Step 3: Unzip the antnet_281_29.tar.gz and paste the antnet/ folder to ..ns-2.35/
(This will be main algorithm, Open the code and understand)

Step 4: Open the Terminal and go to ns-2.35  (in my case it is /home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/)
$]  cd /home/pradeepkumar/ns-allinone-2.35/ns-2.35/
$] ./configure 
$] make clean  (This command may be used if you have any problem in creating the .o files)
$] make 

Step 5: Run the simpleant.tcl using
$] ns simpleant.tcl 
This will create three files,
rtable.txt (The routing table of all the nodes)
simple.nam ( A network animation file)
simple.out (A Trace file)

Here is the sample output
antnet
Antnet
contents of rtable.txt
