Title: Can I control a Zodiac FX with ovs-ofctl?
Post by: scheffler on December 08, 2019, 05:49:56 PM
Hi,

the manpage for ovs-ofctl says, that it should work not just with Open vSwitch, but any OpenFlow switch.
I have tried unsuccessfully to use ovs-ofctl to control a Zodiac FX.
The Zodiax FX usually initiates the connection to the controller and does not expose any TPC ports other than 80.

Has anybody tried a similar setup and can enlighten me if this is even possible?

Regards,
Thomas

Hi Thomas,

ovs-ofctl is the OpenFlow configuration utility that comes with Open vSwitch and only work with OVS, not the Zodiac FX. There are two ways to configure the Zodiac FX, either via the serial console or the web interface.
