Hi,

The Zodiac FX does support POX. There were some match issues initially but they were fixed in firmware version 0.59.
As the Zodiac FX has 4 ports, one is for the controller which will leave 3 available for clients / servers. It is possible to make an OpenFlow switch from a RPi but it will be more costly once you buy 3 x USB to Ethernet dongles and it is also a lot more complex to set up. 
 
Regards,
Paul
