    33== What is GENI-in-a-Box? ==
    4 GENI-in-a-Box is intended to help you get started with GENI without having to apply and get approved for a GENI account.  You can use GENI-in-a-Box to set up and run experiments just as you would with using resources from a real GENI aggregate.  With GENI-in-a-Box all the resources you use exist within a virtual machine running on your computer.

    6 The figure below is a schematic of the GENI-in-a-Box.  GENI-in-a-Box is distributed as a  [http://https://www.virtualbox.org VirtualBox] virtual machine image that you download and import into !VirtualBox running on your computer.  The virtual machine includes the [http://trac.gpolab.bbn.com/gcf/wiki/Omni Omni] experiment control tool and an aggregate that makes up to six virtual machines available for experimentation.   You can connect these virtual machines to form any topology you wish so long as the topology does not require more than three NICs on any machine.  GENI standard rspecs are used to specify desired topologies and to specify any software to be installed and executed on these machines.  You can also ssh into these machines.
