Hi everyone! I'm new to all this stuff but very interested and would like to reference to your project in my work. I would like to ask is there any good guides or tutorials that would help me in installing the Boost++ Libraries because i cannot find one. I have this kind of errors - pasteboard.co/IJRmS6E.png Thank you.

Unfortunately, I do not know a good guide for Boost. I know that there is the Getting Started Guide on the Boost website. If you find a better guide, please tell us.
The answer also depends heavily on your operating system. On an Ubuntu Linux system it would be enough to call sudo apt install libboost-dev to get everything installed where it should be. On Windows you have to download and compile/install the stuff yourself (as far as I know, I'm no Windows expert).
If you need Boost only for LibPTP, you have luck also on Windows. As far as I remember LibPTP only depends on header-only libraries from Boost. This means it should be enough to download Boost and tell OMNeT++ where to find the Boost headers. If you are on Windows do the following:
Download Boost, unzip it somewhere, e.g. C:\boost
In OMNeT++, open the project settings of LibPTP (right-click -> Project Settings)
Go to C/C++ General -> Paths and Symbols and switch to the Includes tab
Add the path where you have copied Boost (e.g. C:\boost)
Thanks for bringing this topic up, I realize that this information is missing in our Install Guide
Thank you. Your steps with Boots help me. About my work it's a small studie project, but i very interested in PTP networks and your work helps me alot. Would like to share something with community when i have. Thank you again work your help and this work.
