The cnet network simulator (v1.7.7) enables experimentation with various data-link layer, network layer, routing and transport layer networking protocols. cnet has been specifically developed for, and used in, undergraduate computer networking courses taken by thousands of students since 1991. At The University of Western Australia, cnet is used primarily in Chris McDonald's Computer Networks (IT312) undergraduate unit.
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.cs.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. Please ask your professor or instructor.
