Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) are temporal networks consists of wireless interface, dynamic connection establishment without pre-existing infrastructure, low power, dynamic topology and self organized nodes. Security and reliability play major role on selection of a node for packet forwarding. In this paper, the authors proposed a new approach to select the best-fit next node selection process. The proposed algorithm is novel, because it selects the next node which is farthest, reliable and efficient at the same time with minimum computation requirement.
