In this paper, the authors present a pure graphical based simulator used to study two ad hoc protocols (DSR & AODV). Simulator has drag and drop functionality which makes it user friendly even for a novice user. An ad hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile hosts forming a temporary network without the aid of any established infrastructure or centralized administration. The AODV routing protocol uses an on-demand approach for finding routes, that is, a route is established only when it is required by a source node for transmitting data packets.
