The emerging of wireless network deemed to be a solution to overstep problems associate with wired networks, since wireless networks have better services and facilities rather than those provided with wired networks, and as a consequence, it considered as an advanced mechanism of network communication to keep pace with the growth of Internet technologies. The problem of routing is the essential challenge in the reconfigurable wireless environments. Designing and developing a routing protocol in
simulated environment make it easier to understand the behaviour of the protocol, and might lead to further improvement, before deploying the protocol in real network. The lack of suitable guideline for implementing a routing protocol is considered an important issue for researchers in terms of time and efforts. This project provides a guideline of step by step approach to implement a MANet
point-to-point routing protocol. The project includes both system development process and the necessity to invoke a simulation; therefore we combined two methodologies to
produce a new methodology that is applied to conduct this project. The project uses Network Simulator 2 (ns-2) to achieve its objectives. It is worthwhile to mention that
the protocol implemented in this project is in general enough to have several common points with other routing protocols, and it is a tool that make researchers familiar with the steps and files required to implement or develop a MANet unicast routing protocol. This project can be a useful guideline to other network researchers and programmers to study the process of implementing or developing any MANet unicast routing protocol in ns-2.
