The Simulation Network Interface (SNI) is a set of tools developed to address the need of interacting and exchanging data between different simulation programs on possibly remote machines through a simple set of calls. A key priority in its development was that ``compliant'' simulation models (i.e., models that can be coordinated remotely through the SNI) can be implemented in any language, with no need to link SNI-specific libraries, and that the recoding effort needed when adapting legacy models be small, or none at all. In fact, the complexities of the network interaction are entirely ignored by the programmer of the model, who simply concentrates on providing models with a usable command-line interactive interface. Most models can be adapted to the SNI concept with a few lines of code and don't require any additional libraries or programming tools.
