Command-Line interface

Most of the IPMininet CLI functionality is similar to Mininet CLI. We extended it to support IPv6 addressing and routers. For instance, the pingall command will test both IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity between all hosts.

You can find more documentation (valid for both CLIs) on:

However, the mn command won’t start a IPMininet topology but a Mininet one. If you want to try the IPMininet CLI, you can launch the following command:

$ sudo python -m ipmininet.examples --topo simple_ospf_network

To get the complete list of commands, when in the CLI, run:

mininet> help

To get details about a specific command, run:

mininet> help <command>
