[ndnSIM] problem with hopcount tag in wifi

Just guessing without having much context about your scenario: are you installing an application on each node? If so, passing the packet to the application layer at each node might reset the counter.

Hi all
I have extended ndn-simple-wifi by adding more nodes between consumer and producer, and for making intermediate nodes to forward the packets, I used addRoute on one face for all of them. But now the problem is about hopcount tag that doesn’t increment properly. It sets 0 at consumer node, incremented just in router node1 and would be fix (equals to 1) in all other nodes contrary to that it is forwarded to 30 other nodes. Is there any solution or guidance for solving this?

I'm using ndnsim 2.7.
With best regards
