Routing Protocol Simulators -Reply

Novell built one for NLSP.  NLSP models the IS - IS protocol for IPX.  The
simulator creates a variety of topologies, allows you to specify change
rates in those topologies, and also allows you to create your own.  Some
of the topologies are a cube, one that models what an ISP deploying IPX
might look like, and one that models RIP.  I'm not sure whether additional
topologies have been added.

You can contact AE Natarajan for more information (he is copied on this
email message).
