The package is available from
This is a binary release based on OMNeT++ Version 2.0.1 with all
sources included. It comes with its own TCL/TK libraries and include
files. This distribution uses static libraries and the OMNeT++ kernel
is compiled with debugging information.
After package installation with the pkgadd tool and setting up two
environment variables you can start using OMNeT++ right out of the

   set up your environment for using OMNeT++.
