As is known, because it is a distance vector protocol
, DVMRP works with source trees (SPT).
The Secure Efficient Ad hoc Distance vector protocol
SEAD (by Hu, Johnson and Perrig ).
A major difference between distance vector and link state protocols is that whilst the distance vector protocol
learns the routing table and distant routers from directly connected neighbors, link state protocols learn the entire topology of a network .
This paper represents an analysis for the performance of Link State Protocols and Distance Vector Protocols
in Mobile Adhoc networks.
