In this paper we describe the Netsim program which is used to graphically simulate distributed algorithms and protocols. The algorithms should be written in Java according to a given interface and can then be loaded into the Netsim program and be simulated using an appropriate network. Then the communication will be animated on the screen and the simulation can be controlled in different ways. After the simulation different data can be collected for further analysis.
