In the modern era, use of mobile wireless devices is increasing enormously which leads probers to frequently work over the new improvements in Mobile Ad hoc NETwork i.e. MANET and routing protocols in MANET. This paper is to compare the existing reactive MANET routing protocols by using Opnet17.5 software. The focus of this paper is on reactive routing protocols (AODV and DSR) under the scenarios using file transfer protocol (ftp).In MANET, it is not an easy task to predict the performance of routing protocol. During this research, the authors analyzed the performance of reactive MANET routing protocols, for example: Ad-hoc On demand Distance Vector routing (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) on the basis of different parameters such as delay, throughput, number of hops per route, routing traffic send and received.
