The operation of MAODV is analogous to the operation of AODV.
Multicast routes are discovered on demand. The multicast route request
is broadcast similar to the unicast route request, and the route reply
propagates back from the nodes that are members of the multicast group.
The MAODV Internet draft describes in detail the operation of MAODV.
- Based on AODV-UU
- The -DMAODV flag in the makefile can be used to turn on/off MAODV
without the flag in the makefile you should be able to run default
- Has been tested on IPAQs and cerfCube (strongARM based devices)
and ofcourse laptops with orinoco 802.11b cards
- This MAODV patch has not yet been integrated with ns2, if you are
interested in adding this functionality, please send me email at the address
- Multicast gateway support and some minor modifications to the unicast
gateway code is now available in the newer patches. Gateway support
was implemented/tested with OSPF/MOSPF code from www.ospf.org. Please see this document regarding some of our assumptions,
and some configuration instructions and other details to get MOSPF and MAODV
- Download basic MAODV patch from here: patch-maodv-umd-0.6
- For multicast gateway support use the following patches:
- The multicast gateway patches incorporate the earlier basic MAODV
- Copy the patch into a AODV-UU src code directory and then use:
patch -p2 < my_patch_file_name
