Description

This project contains the implementation of an extension to the OSPFv3 routing protocol providing support to different protocol adaptations for operation in wireless ad hoc-networks: These configurations are implemented as modifications on the source code for the ospf6d daemon (implementing OSPFv3 as specified in RFC 5340) of the Quagga/Zebra networking suite. The resulting code can be used:
  1. as part of the Quagga/Zebra networking suite, able to run different routing protocols in a computer, and
  2. as emulation of the OSPFv3 wireless ad-hoc configurations in the framework of the Georgia Tech Network Simulator (GTNetS).

License, installation and usage of the INRIA OSPFv3 Extension for Wireless Ad-hoc Networks is documented in the User Guide.

Download Source Code

OSPF-MANET (v.00) is distributed under the GPL license and is available for download below.

The INRIA OSPFv3 Extension for Wireless Ad-hoc Networks included in this project can be used for network simulation (as part of GTNetS) or routing purposes (as part of the Quagga/Zebra suite).

Georgia Tech Network Simulator -- GTNetS

GTNetS can be downloaded from here.

This version of GTNetS should be modified with the following files and patches in order to provide support for the OSPFv3 Extensions for MANETs:

Quagga/Zebra Network Routing Suite

The Quagga/Zebra network routing suite can be downloaded (v0.99.15-1) from here.

This version (v0.99.15-1) of the Quagga/Zebra routing software suite should be modified with the following patches in order to provide support for the INRIA OSPFv3 Extension for Wireless Ad-hoc Networks:
