BridgeSim is a simulation environment for studying the behavior of
ethernet bridging protocols. Currently, RSTP (802.1w) is the only
bridging protocol supported. BridgeSim is heavily based on rstplib version 1.1.02 by
Alex Rozin and Michael Rozhavsky.
BridgeSim is open source software released under the LGPL.
For more information, see the README file that comes with the release.
On May 2, 2005, BridgeSim version 0.03 was released. Get it here.
This release should be identical to version 0.02 except for 2 minor
changes: First, I corrected the COPYING file to include the right
version of the LGPL. Second, I used newer versions of automake and
friends to prepare the release.
The archive has been packed with tar and compressed with bzip2.
Recent versions of tar should be able to open it with the command
tar jxvf bridgesim-0.02.tar.bz2
If that doesn't work, try
bunzip2 bridgesim-0.0.2.tar.bz2 ; bridgesim-0.02.tar
BridgeSim is far from complete. If you would like to participate
in its development, mail Andy Myers (acm "at" cs.cmu.edu) for more
You don't want an old release. But just in case you do:
On August 26, 2004, BridgeSim version 0.02 was released. Get it here.
On July 6, 2004, BridgeSim version 0.01 was released. Get it here.
