[mininet-discuss] Mini-CCNx and Mininet

As Greg has accurately pointed out, while mn-ccnx is a fork of mininet it
does not change any line of code of neither mininet nor ccnx (or at least
should not :) )

So, it should be straightforward to install along the latest mininet
version and potentially ccnx code version (though some APIs may have
changed, hopefully not...)

I hope one of my students this semester will give continuity to the
development of new features to ease ccn experiments, keeping upgrades to
the newest mininet version and also pursuing simulatenous support of
OpenFlow switches and controllers and CCNx nodes.

We welcome code contributions via github, looking forward for new

You can find more details on the mn-ccnx here

and it a recent publication on ccn routing experiments:
