INET Framework for OMNEST/OMNeT++ 4.0 ===================================== The INET framework is an open-source communication networks simulation package, written for the OMNEST/OMNeT++ simulation system. The INET framework contains models for several Internet protocols: beyond TCP and IP there is UDP, Ethernet, PPP and MPLS with LDP and RSVP-TE signalling. See the CREDITS file for the names of people who have contributed to the INET Framework. IMPORTANT: The INET Framework is continuously being improved: new parts are added, bugs are corrected, and so on. We cannot assert that any protocol implemented here will work fully according to the specifications. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE YOURSELF TO MAKE SURE THAT THE MODELS YOU USE IN YOUR SIMULATIONS WORK CORRECTLY, AND YOU'RE GETTING VALID RESULTS. Contributions are highly welcome. You can make a difference! See the WHATSNEW file for recent changes. GETTING STARTED --------------- You may start by downloading and installing the INET demo on Windows. Then you can gather initial experience by following the INET tutorial. After that, you can learn the NED language from the OMNeT++ manual & sample simulations. After that, you may write your own topologies using the NED language. You may assign some of the submodule parameters in NED files. You may leave some of them unassigned. Then, you may assign unassigned module parameters in omnetpp.ini of your simulation. (You can refer to sample simulations & manual for the content of omnetpp.ini) Finally, you will be ready to run your simulation. As you see, you may use the INET framework without writing any C++ code, as long as you use the available modules. Finally, to implement new protocols or modify existing ones, you'll need to download the INET source, compile it yourself, then start adding/modifying source files yourself. It is a workable approach to compile your C++ code as shared library (.so on Linux/Unix), and get the INET executable load it dynamically.
