Hi Guntur,

I'm glad of that!

As you may probably know by now, ndnSIM has a globalRoutingHelper, which is
not a real-time routing protocol. But for nlsr, thanks to Anil, it has
already been ported into ndnSIM. You can find the nlsr code here:
And here you can find the doc on how to compile it:

About OSPFN, it's better to quote Lixia from a couple of months ago

I dont think OSPFN was coded into ndnSIM, nor do we have such a plan.
