Getting Started with NLSR

Getting Source

Configuration

After installing NLSR from source, you need to create a configuration file for NLSR. Please take a look at nlsr.conf for a sample configuration. For details on configuring a router, please refer to Router Configuration. For details on security configuration, please refer to Security Configuration.

Running

Run nlsr with the following command:

nlsr

NLSR will look for the default configuration file, nlsr.conf, in the current directory.

You can also run nlsr -f with the absolute path of the configuration file:

nlsr -f /usr/local/etc/ndn/nlsr.conf

To run NLSR as daemon, use the -d flag:

nlsr -d
