  1. Your blog is awfully appealing. I am contented with your post. I regularly read your blog and its very helpful. If you are looking for the best Algorithm Interview Questions, then visit TutorialCup. Thanks! I enjoyed this blog post.

  2. Respected Sir,

    I am getting the following error. Can you sort it out.

    farooque@farooque-Vostro-3490:~/Desktop/ns-allinone-3.31/ns-3.31$ ./waf --run scratch/vanet-routing-compare
    Waf: Entering directory `/home/farooque/Desktop/ns-allinone-3.31/ns-3.31/build'
    Waf: Leaving directory `/home/farooque/Desktop/ns-allinone-3.31/ns-3.31/build'
    Build commands will be stored in build/compile_commands.json

    Command ['/home/farooque/Desktop/ns-allinone-3.31/ns-3.31/build/scratch/vanet-routing-compare'] terminated with signal SIGIOT. Run it under a debugger to get more information (./waf --run --gdb").

  3. sir can u please post ant based routing algorithm fro manets

  4. sir i tried for TCP congestion control wired network after saving NSG file it gives segmentation fault error how to resolve it

    1. I think there is some error while creating the Application or Agent in the NSG. Either send me the file for correction or try again in NSG to resolve the error.

  5. Respected Sir,
    I am new to ns2. I am planning to work on WBAN energy efficient routing as a part of my PhD.
    Kindly guide me how to start.

  6. can you please make a video 'implementing p2p overlay over manet in ns2 step by step.
    it's a request.

  7. dear sir,
    please can u make a step by step tutorial about p2p protocol over manet.
    please sir.

  8. Hopefully, you will be fine. I am already asked you about the trust based implementation in NS2 for WSN. Please Sir give me your valuable solutions.
