Project 1

The goal of this project is to learn to use the ns2 network simulator. Here are a set of exercises, in increasing order of difficulty, to accomplish this task.

First, you will need to acquire and install the ns2 sources. You can do so from the ns2 distribution here.

Here are some reference links on ns2:

Once you have installed and compiled ns2, it's time to run some simulations through it. In the examples below, replace the ns2 version number (2.1b8a) with the version number that came with the ns2 installation you are using.

You should now be a fairly decent ns2 user.
