Also.. could you please use the address for your emails regarding GINI?
This mailing list is read by my students working on GINI.. so they could 
chip in with their
thoughts as well.

>> Respected Sir,
>>              My name is Prasad Lodha (Student ID: 20397725). I am 
>> pursuing Master of Computer Science at University of Western  Australia. 
>> I have started with my thesis this semester. My supervisor  is Prof. 
>> Chris McDonald. The topic for my thesis is "Implementation of  ad-hoc 
>> protocols in GINI". My supervisor had attended the seminar of  GINI and 
>> had a talk with the authors of GINI for the implementation of  ad-hoc 
>> protocols in GINI.
>>             I have installed GINI on my local machine and it works  fine. 
>> It is a very good piece of software to study computer networks  with easy 
>> GUI. But the problem is i am not familiar with GINI. When I  saw the GINI 
>> video and created the same topology and try to use ping  command the ping 
>> session never finished. So i had to forcefully stop  it using Ctrl + Z. I 
>> don't no whats wrong ... or is it the  installation problem... missing 
>> some package... no idea about it.  Also, how to write our own protocols, 
>> topology files in GINI and how  to implement it from scratch. I dont have 
>> any documentation of GINI  and din't find  it on web as well.
>>             Please help me to proceed further with GINI as I am a  newbie 
>> in GINI. If possible please send me useful document to start  with GINI 
>> (e.g how to write protocols in GINI).
>> Thank you.
