Open Overlay Router is available for Linux, OpenWrt routers and Android. You can get the source code to compile OOR for each of the platforms here.


Get the .zip with the latest available release here


Get the precompiled package of OpenWrt with LISPmob in the following link:

Or you can install Open Overlay Router from ipk installing these files:

There is also available an OpenWrt image pre-configured for easy home multihoming on certain router models. Multihoming enables bandwidth aggregation over several links and/or link backup. If you are interested, you can read all the details here.


Open Overlay Router includes support for Android devices operating as LISP mobile nodes (LISP-MN). There are two different editions of the OOR Android application, for rooted devices and for non-rooted devices. It is expected that in the future the root version will provide features beyond those available on the non-root version, however on current version there is just one root-only feature, support for IPv6 RLOCs. In both editions, there is a limit of one IPv4 EID and one IPv6 EID mapped to one or more RLOC interfaces. Even though several interfaces can be managed by OOR at the same time, they can only be used in an active-backup fashion (no more than one interface used at once).

The two different editions of the OOR application have different requirements. OOR for rooted devices requires root access and Android version 2.3.6 or higher, while OOR for non-rooted devices requires Android 4.0 or higher. Please note that due to a bug on Android 4.4.0 and onwards, the non-rooted version of OOR will not work on Android 4.4.0, 4.4.1, 4.4.2 or 4.4.3. The bug was fixed on Android 4.4.4. To ease the installation process we strongly recommend installing OOR through Google Play (search for “open overlay router”), however you can also download a precompiled APK package file from this website or compile the app from sources yourself. In any case, if you choose to install OOR without using Google Play, the device must be configured to allow the installation of packages from "unknown sources" (System Settings -> Security -> Device Administration).
