Hi all,

Thanks for your comments. The Ethernet face is working in ad hoc mode now.
Regarding the issue of delaying Interest and Data packets, would it make
sense to implement the logic in the Ethernet face? I believe I would have
to modify the "EthernetTransport::sendPacket" method in the
to get the location from the packet name and delay the forwarding
accordingly. Is that correct? (sorry I don't have experience with Ethernet

Thank you
