network simulator

I have been sturggling with ns2 for the past 24 hours. ns2 is an open source network simulation implemented in tcl and C++. It suppose to be one of the most popular academic reseach tool in communication network. My problem right now is the compliation doesn’t seem right, when I run a sample testscript, it dies with a segmentation fault. I had tried different version under linux and cygwin without luck. Cygwin is another interesting open source program. It is like a linux emulator sitting on top of Windows, so user can compile and use unix/x-win softwares. If ns2 under cygwin still fails, I’m afraid to use brute force attack, fire up the debugger and figure out exactly what went wrong.

One thought on “network simulator”

  1. When I was taking 833, we were forced to use NS2 (and OPNET). We did the NS2 assignment at work when alison still had the unix box. I think we just xterm’ed to one of the SFU computers where NS2 is already installed and working. Something you might want to try.
