Anhinga project with Many-to-Many Protocol (M2MP) takes fundamentally different approach to resolve dynamic network topology in ad hoc networks. Instead of trying host-address based networking and routing to make work in ad hoc network environment, M2MP removes device address and groups. All messages goes to all devices within proximal area and each device decides whether and how to process the message based on message s content. [1] This project expands on this infrastructure by delivering these messages beyond sender device s broadcast range. The project implements Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol based controlled flooding techniques. It also provides functionality for node-to-node communication based on IETF draft for DSR [13] in Anhinga infrastructure.
