The cnet network simulator (v2.0.5)
enables experimentation with various data-link layer, network layer,
routing and transport layer networking protocols in networks consisting of
any combination of point-to-point links and IEEE 802.3 Ethernet segments.
cnet has been specifically developed for, and is used in,
undergraduate computer networking courses taken
by thousands of students worldwide since 1991.
At The University of Western Australia,
cnet is used primarily in
Computer Networks (IT312).
cnet runs on a variety of UNIX and Linux platforms. It does not run on either Windows or the Apple Macintosh. The original and most up-to-date version of this documentation remains at www.csse.uwa.edu.au/cnet/.

Please appreciate that there are thousands of students worldwide using cnet. I am unable to respond to individual questions about cnet, unless they are from students enrolled in a course that I'm presenting. In particular, I will not answer homework or assignment questions. Please ask your professor or instructor.
AcknowledgmentsThe following people have generously offered suggestions, pieces of code, and acted as testers, as cnet has developed over the years. A big thanks to them all:
Dr Greg Baur (University of Western Kentucky), Prof. Bruce Elenbogen (University Michigan-Dearborn), Mark Davies (University of Wellington, New Zealand), Prof. John Hine (University of Wellington, New Zealand), Dr Chris Johnson (The Australian National University), Dr David Laverell (Calvin College, Michigan), A/Prof. Phil MacKenzie (Boise State University, Idaho), Prof. Jeff Ondich (Carleton College, Minnesota), Dr Chris Pudney (The University of Western Australia), Dr Mike Robins (SMR Electronics Pty Ltd), Prof. James Wilkinson (College of Charleston, South Carolina), and my 1450 undergraduate students at The University of Western Australia and Dartmouth College who have always been able to find the last bug.
John O. Moen, from graphicmaps.com, has graciously permitted some images of countries (maps) to be distributed with cnet.
A number of people have provided bugfixes and ported cnet to other platforms. Please see the Changelog for details.
