Discrete event simulation is widely used within the networking research community to demon­
strate the validity of various network protocols and architectures. Depending on the level of
detail modeled within the simulation, the running time and memory requirements required can
become excessive. The goal of our research is to develop and demonstrate an approach that will
exploit scalable, parallel and distributed simulation techniques to improve performance, and will
enable widespread reuse of network simulation models and software. We focus on a design that
will allow a distributed simulation run on a loosely coupled network of workstations, perhaps
distributed over a wide area network. In this paper, we describe our lessons learned in taking
