Hi users I am currently studying the mobile IP behaviour using ns2.28. During simulations I noticed a serious bug in mip implementation of ns2.28 . That is too long handover time. It was difficult for me to trace the actual cause.
How ever in the ns mail archieves I read the same problem titled "Too long handover time" by Michal on sep 13, 2005. Michal in his study traced the cause because of ARP message. According to him the problem is due to ARP implementation of ns2.28. According to him

I am now unable to address this probelem as I donot know how and where to correct the ARP module as indicated by the Michal
Can any one help me in this regard
