ROUTER_HOME error while running a eval version for real time lan over wan example

I am getting the following error while running the "lan over wan" example.

The ROUTER_HOME environment variable must be set to

Connext_install_dir/RTI_Routing_service_5.0.0 to run this example

And I have set the environmen variable, $ROUTER_HOME. Pasting the echo output in below.

[email protected] ~/DataSubsetWAN/ExampleCode $ echo $ROUTER_HOME 
/home/biswanath/rti_connext_dds-5.2.0/RTI_Routing_service_5.0.0

Also there doesn't seems to be any folder named RTI_Routing_service_5.0.0 in the connext_install directory. 

Please let me know if you need any other information.

Hi Biswanath,

Can you try setting ROUTER_HOME to the following path /home/biswanath/rti_connext_dds-5.2.0?

$ export ROUTER_HOME=/home/biswanath/rti_connext_dds-5.2.0

It looks like those instructions for setting ROUTER_HOME have not been updated since 5.0.0 and you seem to be using version 5.2.0. Can you point me to the place where you read those instructions?

Thanks,
Fernando.

Please see running the example. The specific instructions are  

The first thing you must do is set an environment variable called ROUTER_HOME. This environment variable must point to the RTI_Routing_Service_5.1.0 directory inside your RTI Connext DDS installation...

Will try your suggestions.
