AODV-UU Installation on PC/Desktop/Laptop
In this part, I will show you how to install AODV-UU on your laptop / PC using Linux OS for real world implementation on ad hoc network. We need ‘Netfilter’ modul in Linux kernel. For further info about Netfilter, please visit http://www.netfilter.org
Before installation, you’d better check for ‘development tools’ and kernel configuration on your Linux OS. If both of them are not installed yet, you should installed them first. AODV-UU compilation is performed by ‘make’ utility from Linux OS. The Makefile will create an aodv daemon (aodvd) and a kernel modul (kaodv.o). The installation is as follows:
- go to AODV-UU directory: ~ # cd /path/to/aodv-uu-0.9.x - compile with “make “ : ~ # make - then install : ~ # make install
If it is done, the kernel module of AODV-UU will be called by the modprobe system automatically.
To run AODV we need to activated AODV deamon (aodvd) with “root” privilage.
[root@laptop-aodv-uu]# aodvd -l -r 3 -w Where : • aodvd : activate AODV-UU daemon. • -l : activate log file. • -r 3 : update routing table every 3 seconds. • -w : activate gateway mode.
