Configuring applications from UT Node to UT Node

Open NetSim, Select Examples ->Satellite Communication -> UT to UT Communication then click on the tile in the middle panel to load the example as shown in below screenshot

Figure4-7

The following network diagram illustrates, what the NetSim UI displays when you open the example configuration file as shown in below Figure.

Settings done in example config file

  1. Set the following property as shown in below given table:

    UT_Node Properties -> Interface (Satellite) -> DataLink Layer
    Gateway Sat_Gateway_4
  2. Go to UT_Node_2 properties -> Network_Layer -> Enable - Static IP Route ->Configure Static Route IP.
    Figure4-9

  3. Set the properties in Static Route IP window as per the screenshot below and click on Add. Click on OK.
    Figure4-10
  4. Go to Sat_Gateway_4 properties -> Network_Layer -> Enable - Static IP Route ->Configure Static Route IP
    Figure4-11
  5. Set the properties in Static Route IP window as per the screenshot below and click on Add. Click on OK. Figure4-12
  6. Set Application Properties are default (Packet Size: 1460, Inter Arrival Time: 20000 µs)
  7. Set Transport Protocol to UDP
  8. Enable Packet Trace, Event Trace and Plots.
  9. Run simulation for 100 seconds and observe the result.

Result: Go to the result window and open packet trace/ Animation window user can observe the packet flow from UT node (source) → Satellite → Sat gateway → Satellite → UT node (destination)
